Fluor Corporation has announced that it has signed an agreement with JGC America, Inc. (JGC) to provide construction-related support to the front-end engineering and design (FEED) services for the Woodfibre LNG project in the District of Squamish near Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Fluor booked the undisclosed contract value in the fourth quarter of 2016.

Under the subcontract, Fluor 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 million tpy natural gas Woodfibre liquefaction plant and export facility.

“With our industry-leading modular design and construction approach, 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. “Leveraging JGC’s extensive LNG experience and Fluor’s project execution and construction expertise, we look forward to helping Woodfibre LNG advance this project for the community and British Columbia.”

The proposed facility will be powered with electricity from BC Hydro, which generates more than 90% clean renewable energy and will help create one of the cleanest LNG facilities in the world.
