Fluor, JGC to provide EPC services for Canadian LNG export facility


A joint venture between Fluor and JGC has been selected as an EPC contractor by LNG Canada for its planned liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility in Kitimat, British Columbia, Canada.

The proposed LNG export facility will liquefy surplus Canadian natural gas so that it can be safely exported to help meet global energy demands.

Initially, the facility features 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.

Under the terms of the contract, JGC and Fluor will be responsible for recruiting thousands of skilled workers required during the five-year construction period.

LNG Canada has ensured the project hires locally and within British Columbia, prior to hiring from the rest of Canada.

Fluor Energy & Chemicals business group president Jim Brittain said: “We thank LNG Canada for the opportunity to participate in developing the first world-class LNG facility in British Columbia.

“Our team has developed an innovative design and execution strategy that improves the project’s competitiveness and predictability and positions it for a final investment decision.

“We look forward to building on the strong relationships that LNG Canada has established with the local community. Our team is committed to developing this facility safely, sustainably and with lasting benefits for the local community and British Columbia.”

LNG Canada is a joint venture comprised of Shell Canada Energy (50%), an affiliate of Royal Dutch Shell, and affiliates of PetroChina (20%), Korea Gas (15%) and Mitsubishi (15%).

Fluor has been operating in Canada since for nearly seven decades. The US-based engineering and construction firm delivered engineering, procurement, fabrication and construction services to some of Canada’s largest oil, gas, petrochemical, mining, power and infrastructure projects.
