Perth-based LNG engineer Clough, as part of the Clough PPM joint venture, has been awarded the EPC contract for the loadout line trestle for the LNG Canada project in Kitimat, British Columbia.
The $40 billion-worth Kitimat project includes a liquefaction facility, a 670 km pipeline from Dawson Creek and a marine terminal. Construction activities began in October 2018, with a target in-service date of the middle of the next decade.
At full capacity, the terminal will convert and export as much as 26 million tons of LNG per year, primarily to Asia. This represents roughly 20 percent of overall gas production in Canada.
Clough CEO and managing director Peter Bennett said: “We are extremely pleased by the award of this scope. This project award also represents Clough’s first major international marine contract since 2010.”
The project team will initially be based in Clough’s Calgary office for the design phase of the contract, followed by mobilization to the Kitimat site, which will commence in due course for the construction phase.
