Venture Global seeks to commence some service at Louisiana Calcasieu LNG plant (U.S.)

(Reuters) - U.S. LNG company Venture Global LNG asked federal energy regulators for permission to commence service of liquefaction blocks 7-9 at its Calcasieu Pass LNG export plant in Louisiana.

The start up of commercial service at that plant is the subject of several disputes between Venture Global and some of its customers, including units of European energy firms Shell, bp, Edison and Repsol.

Some of Venture Global's customers have filed arbitration cases claiming Venture Global unfairly deprived them of billions of dollars of cargoes that Venture Global has sold while the plant was still in commercialization, or test mode, since March 2022.

In its filing on Tuesday, Venture Global told the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) that it produced first LNG in blocks 7A, 7B, 8A and 8B in June 2022 and blocks 9A and 9B in July 2022.
