The final investment decision (FID) was only taken to build the project this month. 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 the project to four trains in the future.
David Seaton, Fluor’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said: “Fluor remains focused on delivering capital efficiency for our clients and we are excited that our joint venture team’s innovative solutions have helped to enable LNG Canada to achieve final investment decision.
“We are committed to closely collaborating with LNG Canada and the local community to deliver this project safely and sustainably and to meet client needs.”
Jim Brittain, group president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals business, added: “Fluor delivered its first project in Canada in the 1940s, which was a refinery in British Columbia.
“Since then, Fluor has been a part of some of Canada’s most significant capital projects. We look forward to building LNG Canada’s facility and bringing lasting economic benefits to the local community and British Columbia."
At the peak of construction, over 4500 workers will be employed. The JV will focus on hiring locally and then throughout British Columbia and Canada. Fluor and JGC will commence site activities this year, with first LNG expected around the middle of next decade.
