Woodfibre LNG Limited and KBR, Inc. have announced that KBR, Inc. has been selected to carryout Pre-Notice to Proceed (Pre-NTP) services for the Woodfibre LNG project.
The selection of KBR for Pre-NTP services follows the successful completion of a competitive Front End Engineering Design (FEED) process for the Woodfibre LNG Project, which was announced in October 2016. Pre-NTP services will be carried out by KBR’s operating centers in Houston and Edmonton. The services include additional FEED work and cost optimisation as well as a proposal for an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract. Woodfibre LNG expects to commence the EPC phase of the Project in 2018.
“The successful completion of FEED and now the selection of KBR to carryout Pre-NTP services are all important steps in moving the Woodfibre LNG Project forward,” said Byng Giraud, Country Manager and Vice President of Corporate Affairs for Woodfibre LNG Limited. “We look forward to reaching our next project development milestone – the awarding of an EPC contract in 2018.”
“We are pleased to continue our relationship with Woodfibre LNG as they progress towards becoming one of the first LNG exporters in Canada,” said Farhan Mujib, President of KBR’s Engineering & Construction (E&C) Americas business. “The award of this work continues to reinforce KBR’s position in British Columbia as well as our strategic commitment to developing fit-for-purpose LNG facilities for our customers.”
