Background

In April 2019, Venture Global submitted a pre-filing letter to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for the Delta LNG Terminal in Louisiana, USA. The full application was filed in December of that year. In 2021, FERC issued initial certifications necessary for the project to proceed.[1]

The Delta LNG terminal site is located near Mile 54 of the Mississippi River, next to the Plaquemines LNG Terminal. It has approximately 3,100 feet of river frontage with easy access to the Gulf of Mexico. The substantial water depth at the terminal means that no dredging will be required.[1]

Once fully constructed, the facility will include thirty-six 0.626 MTPA liquefaction trains, configured in eighteen blocks, four 200,000 cubic meter full containment LNG storage tanks, three marine loading berths for ocean-going vessels, and 1,240 megawatts of combined cycle on-site power generation.[1]

Phase I construction is expected to commence sometime in 2021, with commercial operations expected in 2024. Phase II construction is expected to begin in 2022, with commercial operations expected in 2025.[1]
