ATLANTA, Aug. 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chart Industries, Inc. (GTLS) has received full notice to proceed (“FNTP”) for the production of cold boxes and brazed aluminum heat exchangers for Venture Global’s 10 MTPA Calcasieu Pass liquefied natural gas (LNG) export terminal project. This week Venture Global announced final investment decision (FID) and the closing of the project financing for their Calcasieu Pass LNG facility and associated TransCameron pipeline in Cameron Parish, Louisiana. The proceeds of the debt and equity financing fully fund the balance of the construction and commissioning of Calcasieu Pass. Full site construction began in February 2019 and the Commercial Operations Date is expected in 2022.
At the end of March 2019, Chart booked the full equipment order of $135 million for the Calcasieu project from Baker Hughes, a GE company (BHGE). On Tuesday, August 20, 2019, BHGE announced that it has been awarded a contract and granted notice to proceed on the construction of a comprehensive LNG technology solution for the project. Chart will deliver the equipment on a multi-year schedule in conjunction with BHGE and Kiewit.
“We are proud to be part of Venture Global’s unique and innovative Calcasieu Pass project and overall LNG model,” stated Jill Evanko, Chart’s President and CEO. “In conjunction with our strong partners on this project, we will provide the highest quality cold boxes and heat exchangers on schedule from our Wisconsin and Louisiana facilities.”
