Oil and Gas Analyst comments

Oil and Gas Analyst at GlobalData, Himani Pant Pandey comments: “LNG developers in the US are incentivized by ever-growing demand for natural gas worldwide, especially in the Asian and European regions. The plans of several European countries and Japan to reduce their dependence on Russian gas post Ukraine invasion would further boost liquefaction developments in the US.”

Plaquemines is one of the major LNG liquefaction projects in the US with a capacity of 20.0 million tpy. Venture Global Partners, LLC has the entire equity in the project while Venture Global LNG is the operator.

Venture Global LNG has recently announced Final Investment Decision (FID) for the initial phase of the project, as well as for the related Gator Express Pipeline.
