Published by
LNG Industry,

Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. has announced that it will be executing the dredging scope for the development of the first large scale LNG export facility in Kitimat, Canada (LNG Canada) following the final investment decision by the shareholders.

The contract value is approximately €100 million.

The dredging scope includes the removal and remediation of contaminated and non-contaminated sediments at the site of the future facility in order to provide the required physical space and marine access for the construction of LNG Canada. For these activities Boskalis will deploy a medium-sized trailing suction hopper dredger, cutter suction dredger, backhoe dredger and a crane barge.

Boskalis was involved from the early stages of this development, illustrating the early cyclical exposure dredging has on green field LNG developments.

The dredging activities are expected to continue into 2020.
