Venture Global LNG Inc. has requested permission from FERC to bring three additional liquefaction blocks online at its Calcasieu Pass facility in Louisiana as part of the nearly two-year long commissioning process.

The Virginia-based liquefied natural gas exporter in a recent filing told Federal Energy Regulatory Commission staff that it was ready to place blocks 7-9 into commercial service. The 10 million metric tons/year (mmty) Calcasieu Pass facility uses modular technology that groups 18 smaller liquefaction trains into nine blocks.

Venture requested a response from FERC by next Tuesday (Oct. 17). FERC first approved commissioning activities for the blocks in May and July.
