Fluor Corp. has announced that LNG Canada has made the final investment decision (FID) to build its LNG export facility in Kitimat, British Columbia, Canada.
Fluor’s joint venture (JV) with JGC Corp. will provide the engineering, procurement, fabrication and construction on the project. Fluor will book its US$8.4 billion share of the approximately $14 billion contract value in 4Q18.
The project scope will initially consist of two liquefaction units (trains) for a total of approximately 14 million tpy of LNG. LNG Canada has the option to expand to four trains in the future.
More than 4500 workers will be employed at the peak of construction. The JV will focus on hiring locally and then throughout British Columbia and Canada. Fluor and JGC will begin site activities this year, with first LNG expected around the middle of next decade.
LNG Canada is a joint venture comprised of Shell (40%), PETRONAS (25%), PetroChina (15%), Mitsubishi Corporation (15%) and KOGAS (5%).
