Venture Global LNG Reports Minimal Impacts of Hurricane Laura on Calcasieu Pass LNG
ARLINGTON, Virginia, Aug. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ --

Venture Global LNG, Inc. is pleased to report that its Calcasieu Pass LNG 
facility under construction in Cameron, LA has sustained minimal impacts from 
Hurricane Laura, which made landfall in Louisiana early this morning and passed 
directly over the project site.  A walk-through inspection of most areas of the 
site following the storm confirmed that the project site's robust storm 
protection system, including a perimeter wall and storm water pumping system, 
performed as designed.  Most importantly, all employees and contractor 
personnel are safe and accounted for.

Venture Global is working with its EPC contractor, Kiewit Louisiana Co., to 
promptly and safely regain access to the project site and supporting 
facilities, restore utilities to Cameron and the project site, and 
incrementally support the return to work of craft and Venture Global personnel.

Bob Pender and Mike Sabel jointly stated, "While we are relieved by the minimal 
impacts to Calcasieu Pass LNG, we are mindful that the surrounding communities 
of Cameron and Lake Charles have suffered significant damage from this powerful 
and historic storm.  As a company, we will be communicating with local 
stakeholders in the days and weeks to come to assess how we can support the 
community's recovery."
