KBR Inc. has announced that it will proceed with Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) for the Woodfibre LNG Project, located in the District of Squamish near Vancouver, British Columbia (B.C.), Canada.
This continues the second phase of the contract announced in March 2016 for KBR to perform multi-phased FEED services for the 2.1 million tpy liquefaction export facility.
KBR has successfully completed the first phase, focused on cost optimisation for the LNG project. The company will now provide FEED services for the Woodfibre LNG Export Facility from its operating centres in Houston, Texas, US and Edmonton, Canada, culminating in a lump-sum turn-key (LSTK) price for an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract.
"The award of the FEED contract to KBR, a world leader in LNG FEED and EPC work, reaffirms the momentum behind the Woodfibre LNG project," said Byng Giraud, Country Manager and Vice President of Corporate Affairs for Woodfibre LNG Ltd, the privately held Canadian company behind the Woodfibre LNG Project. "KBR has been a valued contributor to the Woodfibre LNG Project as work continues to ensure the right elements are in place for what could be British Columbia's first LNG export facility," said Giraud.
Farhan Mujib, President of KBR's Engineering & Construction (E&C) Americas business, added: "We are pleased to continue our relationship with Woodfibre as they progress toward becoming British Columbia's first LNG exporter […] This award reinforces KBR's position in British Columbia as well as our strategic commitment to developing fit-for-purpose LNG facilities for our customers."
