Global services company EnerMech Canada has signed its first LNG pre-commissioning and commissioning contract in Canada.
News of the contract follows EnerMech investing over C$19.6m in additional equipment to bolster its fleet, capabilities and services in the Americas.
Under terms of the awarded deal, EnerMech will roll out its integrated project management and delivery solutions specifically developed to enhance efficiencies.
