Venture Global LNG has several facilities across south Louisiana. They are responsible for the liquefied natural gas (LNG) export terminals. ExxonMobil LNG Asia Pacific has signed a contract with Venture Global LNG to purchase 2 million metric tonnes of LNG yearly. Plaquemines LNG facility will provide 1 million tonnes of LNG and Cameron Parish LNG facility will provide the additional 1 million.
The Cameron Parish LNG will begin construction in 2023 and the Plaquemines LNG facility will open in 2024. Both of these facilities will also supply LNG to New Fortress Energy Inc. Plaquemines LNG will also supply LNG to a Shell affiliate. Venture Global also has Delta LNG in Plaquemines Parish which is already producing LNG.
“We look forward to working with Venture Global as we continue to grow ExxonMobil’s
LNG portfolio and progress our plans to reliably deliver natural gas from the U.S. Gulf Coast to global markets,” Peter Clarke, senior vice president of LNG for the ExxonMobil Upstream Company, said in a statement.
