Venture Global selects Honeywell technologies for LNG pretreatment at Louisiana facility

Honeywell announced today that Venture Global LNG, Inc. will use a series of technologies from Honeywell UOP to remove various contaminants from natural gas to applicable LNG specification prior to liquefaction at its Plaquemines LNG export facility in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana.

Honeywell UOP will provide engineering, procurement and fabrication services for the LNG Pretreatment units which, when completed, will pretreat feed gas for the facility which will produce liquefied natural gas (LNG) for export to markets in Asia, Europe and other locations. In 2019, Venture Global selected Honeywell Modular LNG pretreatment technology for its Calcasieu Pass Export facility.

"With this project, Honeywell UOP is helping Venture Global LNG develop a facility that provides a low-cost supply of LNG by using large-scale high-performance equipment. Lean feed gas observed in a good portion of U.S. pipeline poses some unique challenges and UOP’s innovative technologies provide a reliable and cost-effective solution," said Laura Leonard, vice president and general manager of Honeywell UOP’s Process Technologies business.

"Honeywell UOP is an established leader in advanced proprietary technologies for gas pretreatment, and we are pleased to build on the success of Calcasieu Pass and once again partner with them on this critical project," said Mike Sabel, CEO of Venture Global LNG. "These technologies are proven and reliable."

The project will include a Honeywell UOP Mercury Removal Unit (MRU) and multiple trains each consisting of an Acid Gas Removal Unit (AGRU) and SeparSIV Unit. Taken together, these modular units will remove mercury, carbon dioxide, sulfur, water and heavy hydrocarbons to applicable LNG specification from 1.6 billion standard cubic feet per day of natural gas so it can be liquefied and safely transported to customers on ocean-going vessels.

Honeywell UOP is the global leader in gas processing technologies. Its solutions for contaminant removal and hydrocarbon management are used to produce about 40 percent of the world's liquefied natural gas[1]. These technologies are optimized for onshore and offshore natural gas conditioning, treating, natural gas liquids recovery, LNG pretreatment and synthesis gas purification from single unit to highly integrated, multiple technology operations.

Venture Global is a long-term, low-cost provider of U.S. LNG sourced from resource rich North American natural gas basins. Venture Global’s first facility, Calcasieu Pass, commenced producing LNG in January 2022.  The company is also constructing or developing an additional 60 MTPA of production capacity in Louisiana to provide clean, affordable energy to the world. The company is developing Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS) projects at each of its LNG facilities.
