Chart secures equipment order for Venture Global’s Calcasieu Pass LNG
Chart Industries scored a $135 million order for the cold box and brazed aluminum heat exchanger equipment content on Venture Global’s Calcasieu Pass liquefied natural gas (LNG) export terminal project.
The U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) approved Venture Global LNG request to proceed with full site preparation at its proposed 10 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) export terminal in Louisiana earlier this week.
The booking of the full order for the Calcasieu project is the next step following a letter of intent from Baker Hughes, a GE company’s Turbomachinery & Process Solutions business for the full equipment offering of 18 cold boxes and heat exchangers for Calcasieu Pass project, Chart said in a statement.
“We expect notices to proceed on the equipment builds beginning in May 2019,” the company said.
Chart will deliver the equipment on a multi-year schedule in conjunction with Baker Hughes, GE and Kiewit.
