A roundup of news and commentary from NGI’s LNG Insight

  • Venture Global Inc. reported “minimal” damage at Calcasieu Pass LNG terminal construction site in Cameron, LA. Hurricane Laura passed directly over the project. Storm protection system, including a perimeter wall and water pumping system helped mitigate impacts, company said. 
  • Venture is working with its contractor to regain access to site, restore utilities and return to work on the 10 million metric tons/year facility.
  • Sabine Pass and Cameron LNG remained offline on Friday in the storm’s aftermath as damage assessments continue. Feed gas to facilities remains at zero. Pipeline flows to Corpus Christi up day/day to 1.5 Bcf from 920 MMcf as operator Cheniere Energy Inc. likely making up for shuttered production at Sabine. 
  • Sempra Energy’s Cameron said this week it had loaded 100th cargo just days before the hurricane made landfall. The milestone was achieved just over a year after the Hackberry, LA, facility entered commercial operations.
