​LNG Canada handing off plant construction to JGC Fluor

The LNG Canada project owners are officially handing over construction management to their prime contractor, JGC Fluor, the project announced via Facebook on Thursday.

Japan’s JGC Corporation and Texas-based Fluor were awarded the engineering, procurement and construction contract for the project in April 2018.

The joint venture was established to leverage JGC’s extensive experience of LNG projects worldwide, as well as Fluor’s expertise with megaprojects in North America, the companies have said.

Their crews mobilized to the site in November following the positive final investment decision by LNG Canada partners Shell, PETRONAS, PetroChina, Mitsubishi and KOGAS.

Site clearing for the $40-billion export facility is now underway.

LNG Canada said it “will continue to provide oversight to JFJV’s activities and will continue to build strong relationships with the community and complete some marine works.”

The project is expected to start operating in 2023/2024.
