Steelhead LNG said it has signed an agreement with Höegh LNG, for Höegh LNG and Bechtel to perform the pre-front end engineering and design work for its proposed Malahat LNG project.
The Malahat LNG project consists of floating natural gas liquefaction and export facilities located on the shoreline of Malahat Nation-owned land, approximately eight kilometres south of Mill Bay, British Columbia, on the east coast of Vancouver Island, the company said in a statement.
The pre-FEED work, which will commence immediately, and run through to Spring 2016, will include proof of concept studies for developing floating LNG production/storage/offloading facilities for up to 6 million tonnes per annum of LNG at the proposed site.
Further, the pre-FEED work will include establishing a basis of design appropriate to support the FEED phase. Engineering design and studies undertaken through pre-FEED will also support the environmental assessment and facilities permitting processes.
Steelhead has already signed a pre-construction agreement with Williams’ unit Northwest Pipeline.
