The module’s primary function is to connect utilities to LNG processing train 1, and it also supports the transportation of LNG from train 1 to the storage tank.

JGC Fluor Joint Venture (JFJV), the prime contractor of the LNG Canada project, said the installation is significant, describing the project as “a culmination of many years of planning and collaboration between JGC and Fluor engineering teams, bringing together elements from separate fabrication yards using single weld hook-ups in a dramatically different environment from where they were built.”

To remind, in 2018, the JV partners in LNG Canada took a final investment decision (FID) and said the development of the project will cost about $14 billion.

When completed, the facility is expected to consist of a natural gas receiving and LNG production unit, a marine terminal with the capacity to accommodate two LNG carriers, a tugboat dock, and LNG loading lines. It will also include LNG processing units, storage tanks, a rail yard, a water treatment facility, and flare stacks.
