The Projects generally will involve 36-inch diameter pipe, metering, and compressor station additions and improvements. The Gator Express Meter Project is expected to be in service in 2023 and Venice Extension Project is expected to be in service in 2024, with an estimated cost for both projects of US$400 million, which is underpinned by long-term take or pay contracts.
“Enbridge is excited to continue working with Venture Global on their second LNG project to bring clean, reliable natural gas to the U.S. Gulf Coast for export to global markets,” said Cynthia Hansen, Enbridge Executive Vice President and President, Gas Transmission & Midstream. “Our Texas Eastern system is ideally positioned to supply growing North American LNG exports, which are essential to meeting society’s energy security and climate change goals.”
Venture Global Plaquemines LNG, LLC is developing a LNG export facility in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana, approximately 20 miles south of New Orleans. When fully developed, Plaquemines LNG will have an export capacity of up to 20 million metric tonnes per year. The major components of the Plaquemines LNG facility will include a liquefaction plant with 18 integrated single-mixed refrigerant (SMR) blocks, four 200,000m³ LNG storage tanks, three LNG loading docks, and air-cooled power generation facilities. Each liquefaction block will contain two trains, each equipped with a cold box, a heavy hydrocarbon removal section, and a compressor.
