Fluor Corp. has completed the final weld on the first production train at the LNG Canada project, in Kitimat, British Columbia, Canada. This marks a pivotal moment in the construction of one of the largest energy projects in Canadian history.

The final weld took 48 hours of continuous work from teams of welders working in shifts. More than 380 pipe welders have worked on the project since construction began in 2018.

Fluor and JGC Corp. make up the JGC-Fluor joint venture, which is delivering multiple aspects of the LNG Canada megaproject, including engineering, procurement, fabrication, and delivery of modules, as well as construction of the project's infrastructure and utilities, marine structures, and LNG storage tank.

“The significance of achieving the last weld to support Train One completion is a testament to the collaborative efforts of the JGC-Fluor project team, subcontractors and a skilled and dedicated workforce,” said Jim Breuer, President of Fluor’s Energy Solutions business. “We are now one step closer to the introduction of gas and start-up.”

LNG Canada is a joint venture between Shell, Petronas, PetroChina, Mitsubishi Corp., and Korea Gas Corp. The project will have an initial capacity to produce 12.7 tpy of LNG with first shipment expected by the middle of 2025.
