- Venture Global LNG announces the successful roof raising of the first LNG storage tank at Plaquemines LNG
ARLINGTON, Va., Feb. 28, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Venture Global LNG today announced the successful roof raising of the first LNG storage tank at the Plaquemines LNG export facility in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana. This major project milestone was completed ahead of schedule and comes nine months after the final investment decision (FID) for the project.
"I would like to thank both our team and CB partners
This is the first tank of four in total for Plaquemines LNG. When it is operational, it will be capable of storing 200,000 m3 of LNG. The roof weighs 900 tons and is 294 feet in diameter. Air lifting allows for better and safer access, as well as a faster construction timeline, since the roof can be erected at the same time as the framing. The tank dome was raised in 85 minutes using 0.3 psi of pressure below the roof. It rose from ground level to the top of the wall height of 130 feet. Eventually, the tank will have an inner tank made of 9% nickel alloy and a concrete outer wall and roof to provide full containment of the LNG and provide the highest level of resiliency and safety.
