Kitimat LNG Plant

On February 11, 2014, Fluor Corporation and its joint venture partner, JGC, joined Clients Chevron Canada Limited and Apache Canada Ltd. to sign an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract for the proposed Kitimat LNG liquefaction facility at Bish Cove, British Columbia, Canada.

Commenting on the project, Peter Oosterveer, Chief Operating Officer of Fluor, said, “Kitimat LNG has the potential to become Canada's first major LNG production and export terminal. Our strategic relationship with JGC was a key to winning this project and is certainly proving to be a differentiator in our markets.”

The work scope includes detailed engineering and procurement services for the initial phases of the project, and completion of the existing FEED package by finalizing value-improving concepts for the proposed LNG facility. The scope of work also includes two liquefied natural gas trains (each with a nominal capacity of 5.5 million tons per annum (MTPA)), supporting utilities, two 190,000-cubic-meter-capacity LNG storage tanks, product loading facilities, material offloading facilities, marine installations, and related infrastructure.

The project will be performed by Fluor and its joint venture partner, JGC, leveraging the global capabilities and expertise from both companies with project work to be executed from their North America and Asia Pacific offices.
