Plaquemines LNG began early construction work in Q3 2021 and will have a liquefaction capacity of up to 20mn metric tons/year when both phases are completed.

"Venture Global (has) witnessed firsthand the agility of our project management and construction teams to adjust, adapt and overcome the challenges inherent in executing work on the US Gulf Coast," said Cesar Canals, senior vice president of CB&I. "We take great pride in our unwavering commitment to getting the job done safely and on schedule, and appreciate being selected as the tank contractor for Venture Global's next development."

The facility has deep-water frontage and will have up to three ship loading berths for LNG vessels up to 185,000 m3.
