Canada-based firm SNC-Lavalin has won an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract worth $125M from Northwest Natural Gas Company (NW Natural) for the expansion of its natural gas storage services in Oregon, US.

The Production & Processing Solutions service line within the SNC-Lavalin’s Oil & Gas sector will deliver the turnkey project.

The scope of the work will include the connection of a 20km pipeline to a storage reservoir through several wellheads. It will also involve the installation of the pipeline, and construction of a compressor station to withdraw and inject natural gas from or into the reservoir.

According to SNC-Lavalin, the project will allow NW Natural’s underground reservoir to store up to 71M cb m of natural gas.

Furthermore, NW Natural will offer no-notice storage service to Portland General Electric’s generating plants at Port Westward, including a plant designed to integrate more wind power into PGE’s generation mix.

SNC-Lavalin president of oil & gas Martin Adler said: “We are pleased to provide NW Natural the facilities to ensure their customer’s power facility operates at an optimum capacity during varying levels of demand.

“We are excited to begin a new relationship with NW Natural and are committed to our focus on delivery for our client as we work together on this project.”
