Construction is progressing on the Calcasieu Pass LNG export project in Cameron Parish, La., which reported minimal damage from Hurricane Laura Aug. 27. On April 24, the team raised into place the first LNG storage tank roof—an 1.8-million-lb tank dome and assembly—and raised the second on May 19. Kiewit Offshore Services in Ingleside, Texas, also delivered its first module in April. Under the terms of the EPC contract, Kiewit Louisiana Co. will design, engineer, construct, commission, test and guarantee the facility. In June, project owner Venture Global LNG Inc. said the project team had begun setting in place two Chart Industries Inc. brazed aluminum heat exchangers, also known as cold boxes, the first of 18 that will be part of the Calcasieu Pass LNG liquefaction process system. The cold boxes, made in the U.S., were delivered more than four months ahead of schedule—just 10 months after the project’s final investment decision. The project will be composed of 18 mid-scale, modular liquefaction trains, factory-fabricated by Baker Hughes in Italy. Construction has been underway since February 2019. Calcasieu Pass is scheduled to be up and running by 2022.
