Fluor completes work on first train of Canada LNG’s export facility

US-based engineering and construction firm Fluor Corporation has finalised its work on the first production train of LNG Canada’s project in Kitimat, British Columbia.

Canada LNG is a joint venture between Shell, PetroChina, Mitsubishi Corporation and Korea Gas Corporation. Together, the group is aiming for an initial capacity at the site of 12.7 million tonnes of LNG per annum.

The first shipment is expected by the middle of 2025.

Jim Breuer, President of Fluor’s Energy Solutions business, said, “The significance of achieving the last weld to support train one completion is a testament to the collaborative efforts of the JGC-Fluor project team, subcontractors and a skilled and dedicated workforce.”

“We are now one step closer to the introduce of gas and start-up.”

The final weld of the Canada LNG project took 48 hours of work from teams of welders. More than 380 pipe welders have worked on the project since construction began in 2018.

Fluor and JGC Corporation make up the JGC-Fluor joint venture, which is delivering multiple aspects of the LNG Canada megaproject, including engineering, procurement, fabrication and delivery of modules.

The joint venture will also head the construction of the project’s infrastructure and utilities, marine structures and LNG storage tank.

According to the Government of Canada, there are seven LNG export projects and one infrastructure project in various stages of development in the country. These projects represent a potential production capacity of 50.3 million tonnes per annum of LNG.

LNG Canada will be Canada’s first large-scale LNG export facility once complete, aiming for first exports by 2025. Many of the other project’s target beginning operations between 2027 and 2030.
