Canada: Front-End Engineering Fluor Awarded Contract for Woodfibre LNG Project in Canada
Fluor Corporation has signed an agreement with JGC America to provide construction-related support to the front-end engineering and design (Feed) services for the Woodfibre Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) project in the District of Squamish near Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
Irving/USA — Under the subcontract, the engineering company will provide construction planning and design services to support the Feed package and engineering, procurement and construction proposal development. JGC is a Feed contractor for the proposed 2.1 million-tonnes-per-year natural gas Woodfibre liquefaction plant and export facility. Fluor booked the undisclosed contract value in the fourth quarter of 2016.
“With our industry-leading modular design and construction approach, Fluor will work closely with JGC to develop a project execution strategy that delivers capital efficiency and schedule certainty to Woodfibre LNG,” said Pierre Bechelany, senior vice president of pipelines and LNG for Fluor. “Leveraging JGC’s extensive LNG experience and Fluor’s project execution and construction expertise, we look forward to helping Woodfibre LNG advance this project for the community and British Columbia.”
The proposed facility will be powered with electricity from BC Hydro, which generates more than 90 % renewable energy.
