Venture Global

Venture Global LNG announced the execution of a new long-term 20-year Sales and Purchase agreement with Shell. This agreement is for the supply of 2 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) of LNG from Venture Global’s Plaquemines LNG export facility.

Additionally, the company reported that this new deal builds on Shell’s existing contract for 2 MTPA; from the Calcasieu Pass LNG export terminal. This will bring Shell’s total long-term offtake from Venture Global’s facilities to 4 MTPA.

Venture Global CEO Mike Sabel mentioned that “Venture Global is honored that Shell, our first foundational customer at Calcasieu Pass, has chosen to expand its existing cooperation with our company with a second partnership at Plaquemines.” He also said that Venture Global’s commitment is to bring low-cost US LNG online quickly, helping to keep the global market well supplied; while meeting their customers’ growing energy and climate goals. “We look forward to working with Shell for many years to bring low-cost, clean American LNG to the markets that need it most.”

Moreover, the company stated that it now holds the global record for the fastest construction of a large-scale greenfield LNG facility with Calcasieu Pass. Likewise, it is actively under construction at Plaquemines LNG; the company expects it to come online in 2024. Additionally, Global LNG demand is expected to nearly double by 2040. This deal will secure additional volumes for Shell’s leading and diverse global LNG portfolio.
