Fluor bags Woodfibre LNG contract
LNG engineer Fluor signed an agreement with JGC to provide construction-related support services for the Woodfibre LNG project in the district of Squamish, British Columbia, Canada.
Fluor, that has not disclosed the contract value, 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 mtpa natural gas Woodfibre liquefaction plant and export facility.
“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.
Pacific Oil & Gas Limited, part of the Singapore-based RGE group of companies, the parent company of Woodfibre LNG reached the final investment decision for the project in November 2016.
The project involves construction and operation of an LNG export facility on the previous Woodfibre pulp mill site, which would have a storage capacity of 250,000-cbm.
The project has also recently filed an application for a 40-year export license with the National Energy Board (NEB). Woodfibre LNG received a 25-year license in December 2013, however, amendments to the NEB regulations in 2015 increased the maximum term to 40 years.
