WorelyParsons Ltd. reported Wednesday that WorelyParsons Canada Services Ltd., in joint venture with affiliates of Chiyoda Corporation, Foster Wheeler AG and Saipem S.p.A (CFSW JV), has been awarded a contract by LNG Canada Development Inc. (LNG Canada) for the provision of front-end engineering design (FEED) and project execution services for a proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) export project, known as the LNG Canada Project, in Kitimat, British Columbia.
The LNG Canada Project is planned as a phased development initially comprising two processing trains, each with a production capacity of approximately 6 million tons per annum of LNG, with an opportunity for an additional two trains. The release to proceed with the project execution phase is subject to regulatory approvals and a financial investment decision by LNG Canada, a milestone still a couple of years away.
“We are pleased to be working with Chiyoda, Foster Wheeler, Saipem and WorleyParsons, a group of companies who together have extensive experience in the liquefied natural gas industry” said Andy Calitz, CEO, LNG Canada. "LNG Canada’s vision is to work collaboratively with First Nations, the local community and other stakeholders, to deliver a project that is safe, reliable and reflective of community interests and I look forward to us working together to deliver this project’s expected benefits to the surrounding communities and all British Columbians."
LNG Canada is comprised of Shell Canada Energy (50 percent), an affiliate of Royal Dutch Shell plc, and affiliates of PetroChina (20 percent), Korea Gas Corporation (15 percent) and Mitsubishi Corporation (15 percent). This operating entity is incorporated and registered under the federal laws of Canada.
“WorleyParsons is delighted to be a part of this signature energy project for Canada’s west coast,” says Andrew Wood, CEO of WorleyParsons. “Securing this important contract reinforces WorleyParsons’ position as a significant participant in the global LNG business.”
