Chevron Canada awards EPC work to Fluor, JGC on Kitimat LNG project

01.14.2014  | 

The project scope includes completion of the existing FEED package by finalizing value-improving concepts for the proposed Kitimat LNG facility in Western Canada. The scope of work for the contractors also includes detailed engineering and procurement services for the initial phases of the project.

A joint venture comprised of Fluor and JGC was awarded an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract by Chevron Canada for the proposed Kitimat LNG project in Bish Cove, British Columbia, officials said on Tuesday. 

Chevron and Apache each hold a 50% interest in the proposed project.

“We are excited to enter into the next phase of supporting the Kitimat LNG project for Chevron and their partner Apache,” said Peter Oosterveer, president of Fluor’s energy and chemicals business. 

“Kitimat has the potential to become Canada’s first major LNG production and export terminal," he added. "Our strategic relationship with JGC was a key to winning this project and is certainly proving to be a differentiator in our markets.”

The project scope includes completion of the existing FEED package by finalizing value-improving concepts for the proposed LNG facility. The scope of work also includes detailed engineering and procurement services for the initial phases of the project.

The project will be performed by Fluor and its joint venture partner, JGC, leveraging the global capabilities and expertise from both companies with project work to be executed from their North America and Asia Pacific offices.

I am currently working on the Gorgon LNG and the timing should be right to head to Canada for more work. I am an American citizen emplyed as a Civil Construction Manager and have built LNG facilities throughout Australia Looking for a change in the weather(and closer to home)!

I think it's time that Canadians woke up and realized that we must overthrow the Canadian government if they want to support non-unionized trades they have to get the people from Canada working first before they bring in temporary foreign workers

MUHAMMAD JAMAL MAZHAR – The answer is No. Canada is a union friendly country. Canadian unions wrould prefer if mass craft labors from Indian, Philippines, and Pakistan not infiltrate the country and perform the work for 2 dollar/hour (common in Nigeria, & middle east), which a Canadian union worker can get 50 dollars / hour.

Lindsay – Please review the market trend of Chevron. Since Angola LNG, Chevron has gone forward with other LNG projects most notably Gorgon (EPC – KBR) and Wheatstone (EPC – Bechtel). It appears Chevron is keeping all of the EPC contractors afloat in the hopes of maintaining a competitive market and costs down.
Who wants a $50,000,000,000 LNG facility?

For a such big project are you (KBR & JGC JV) planning to employ value added work personnel (Project Mangement Team, Discipline Engineers, Construction Management Team etc) from personnel present in Gulf countirs and also for Asia (India, Pakistan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore etc) ?

Very interesting and great news for Fluor and their partner. Chevron has pretty much used Bechtel until now. But given the debacle in Angola, Chevron must have decided it is time for a new EPC. David O'Reilly the former CEO of Chevron is on Bechtel's board. This is a major switch for Chevron. This also means Air Products will have a crack at selling the baseload LNG heat exchangers to the project. APCI possibly has the best systems for this project. The Angola LNG debacle needs more coverage in HP News

Ron, saw this in today's Hydrocarbon Processing news. I guess this is one of the projects ahead of the XOM LNG project.

Cheers to the economic development of the Kitimat region. Hopefully these projects bring more business to British Columbia!
