HOUSTON (ICIS)--US KBR announced on Tuesday that it was awarded a contract to execute the front-end engineering and design (FEED) for Pacific NorthWest LNG’s world-scale liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility at Lelu Island on the western coast of Canada.
The facility will process North Montney shale gas in British Columbia and convert it into LNG suitable for export, and the two-train LNG plant will have a capacity of 12m tonnes/year, the engineering firm said.
KBR said it is partnering with Japan-based engineering and construction firm JGC on the project.
The contact includes the FEED and early detailed engineering work for LNG plant and associated shipping facilities, including utilities, storage, loading, ship berthing and personnel accommodation facilities.
Pacific NorthWest LNG is a subsidiary of Malaysia’s state-owned oil company PETRONAS and Japan Petroleum Exploration.
