Shell Canada Energy has taken a final investment decision (FID) on LNG Canada, a major liquified natural gas (LNG) project in Kitimat, British Columbia, Canada. With LNG Canada’s joint venture participants also having taken FID, construction will start immediately with first LNG expected before the middle of the next decade.

London/UK — Shell’s 40 % share of the project’s capital cost is within the company’s current overall capital investment guidance of $ 25 to 30 billion per year. According to Ben van Beurden, Chief Executive Officer, Royal Dutch Shell, the supply natural gas over the coming decades will be critical as the world transitions to a lower carbon energy system. Global LNG demand is expected to double by 2035 compared with today, with much of this growth coming from Asia where gas replaces coal. LNG Canada is positioned to help Shell meet the growing needs of customers at a time when we see an LNG supply shortage in our outlook, the CEO said. With significant integration advantages from the upstream through to trading, LNG Canada is expected to deliver the company an integrated internal rate of return of some 13 %, while the cash flow it generates is expected to be significant, long life and resilient.

In the last two years, LNG Canada has improved its competitiveness, reduced execution uncertainty and gained significant stakeholder support, the company announced in a statement.

Petronas Joins Kitimat LNG Project

06/01/2018 - Petronas will take an equity position in LNG Canada, located in Kitimat, British Columbia on the west coast of Canada, through its wholly owned entity the North Montney LNG Limited Partnership, subject to regulatory approvals and closing conditions, announced Shell Canada Energy, Petro China Kitimat LNG Partnership, Diamond LNG Canada and Kogas Canada LNG. read...

LNG Canada is a long life asset that will initially export LNG from two processing units or “trains” totaling 14 million tonnes per annum (mtpa), with the potential to expand to four trains in the future. It is advantaged by access to abundant, low-cost natural gas from British Columbia’s vast resources and the relatively short shipping distance to North Asia, which is about 50 % shorter than from the US Gulf of Mexico and avoids the Panama Canal. The LNG export facility will be constructed using proven industry technology on a large, partially developed industrial site with an existing deep-water port, roads, rail and power supplies.

The project has been designed to achieve the lowest carbon intensity of any LNG project in operation today, aided by the partial use of hydropower.
