Canada: Liquefied Natural Gas Fluor JV Awarded Contract for Kitimat LNG Project
Fluor announced that its joint venture partnership with JGC was selected as the engineering, procurement and construction contractor for LNG Canada’s proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility in Kitimat, British Columbia.
Irving/USA — The award is conditional on a positive final investment decision later this year.
Kitimat is the first world-class LNG facility in British Columbia. The proposed LNG export facility will liquefy surplus Canadian natural gas for exported. The facility will initially consist of two LNG processing units, referred to as trains, each with the capacity to produce at least 6.5 million tons per annum (mtpa) of LNG per train. The project includes the option to expand to four trains in the future.
According to Jim Brittain, group president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals business, the company has developed an innovative design and execution strategy that improved the project’s competitiveness and predictability and positioned it for a final investment decision.
LNG Canada is a joint venture comprised of Shell Canada Energy (50 %), an affiliate of Royal Dutch Shell plc, and affiliates of Petro China (20 %), Korea Gas Corporation (15 %) and Mitsubishi Corporation (15 %).
