Fluor receives LNG project contract in Vancouver, Canada


Fluor Corporation has been awarded a contract by JGC America (JGC) to provide construction-related support to the front end engineering and design (FEED) services for the Woodfibre Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) project.

The LNG project is located in the Squamish district near Vancouver in British Columbia, Canada.

JGC is a FEED contractor for this proposed project.

Fluor has booked the undisclosed contract value in the last quarter of 2016.

Fluor senior vice president of pipelines and LNG Pierre Bechelany said: “With our industry-leading modular design and construction approach, Fluor will work closely with JGC to develop a project execution strategy that delivers capital efficiency and schedule certainty to Woodfibre LNG.”

"After completion, this Woodfibre liquefaction plant and export facility will have the capacity to process 2.1 million-tonnes-per-year natural gas."

“Leveraging JGC’s extensive LNG experience and Fluor’s project execution and construction expertise, we look forward to helping Woodfibre LNG advance this project for the community and British Columbia.”

Under the agreement, Fluor will deliver construction planning and design services that will support the FEED project, as well as the engineering, procurement and construction proposal development.

After completion, this Woodfibre liquefaction plant and export facility will have the capacity to process 2.1 million-tonnes-per-year natural gas.

The facility will procure power and electricity from BC Hydro, a clean renewable energy producer.

With its headquarters in Irving, Texas, Fluor Corporation is a global engineering and construction services providing firm.

The company employs more than 60,000 people globally and generated a revenue of $18.1bn in 2015.
