KBR has been selected for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract as lead contractor for Phase 1 of the Plaquemines LNG export project currently under development in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana.
KBR will integrate the equipment for the 10 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) nameplate facility, identical to the systems being delivered and installed at Venture Global LNG’s Calcasieu Pass project.
Mike Sabel, executive co-chairman and CEO stated, “Plaquemines LNG will deploy Venture Global’s liquefaction trains 19 through 36, identical to the 18 trains currently being fabricated and delivered to our Calcasieu Pass LNG project.”
The Plaquemines LNG project has received all required regulatory approvals and has signed binding 20-year offtake agreements with PGNiG (2.5 mtpa) and EDF (1 mtpa) for 3.5 MTPA of the project’s capacity.
