Technip-led consortium wins LNG project in Canada

A Technip-led consortium has received a contract from Pacific NorthWest LNG Limited Partnership to provide the front end engineering design and early detailed engineering services for a grassroot liquefied natural gas (LNG) project in Canada.

"Technip will be in charge of the LNG trains, the process units and marine facilities."

Proposed to be located on Lelu Island, British Columbia, the project will include two six-million tonnes per year LNG trains, process units and marine facilities, inlet facilities, utilities and power generation, as well as off-sites including buildings and jetty topside facilities.

The contract, which forms part of a multiple design competition scheme, will be executed by Technip's operating centre in Rome, Italy, in collaboration with the consortium project team in Seoul, Korea, and Beijing, China.

Technip will be in charge of the LNG trains, the process units and marine facilities.

The other partners of consortium include Samsung Engineering and China Huanqiu Contracting and Engineering.

Technip's Technip Region B senior vice president Marco Villa said the contract confirms the company's strong position in the liquefaction of natural gas.

"It is also in line with our strategy to get involved at early stages of projects," Villa added.

The project is scheduled for completion in the second semester of 2014.
