Fluor is putting its modular execution experience behind JGC Canada's bid to secure the engineering, procurement and construction contract for the Woodfibre LNG project.

The company announced today that it has signed an agreement with JGC to provide construction-related support for its Woodfibre front-end engineering and design (FEED) proposal.

Woodfibre awarded parallel FEED contracts to KBR, Inc. of Houston, TX, and JGC America, Inc. of Houston, TX last fall.

The $1.6-billion project received corporate sanction in November after British Columbia announced its climate leadership plan, which incentivizes industrial facilities using electric power instead of natural gas.

The two companies will produce two lump-sum turn-key proposals for engineering, procurement and construction contracts for the proposed 2.1 million-tonne-per-year facility.

Under the JGC subcontract, Fluor says it will provide construction planning and design services to support the FEED package and engineering, procurement and construction proposal development.

JGC is a FEED contractor natural gas Woodfibre liquefaction plant and export facility.

KBR has also been awarded a FEED contract for the project.

“With our industry-leading modular design and construction approach, Fluor will work closely with JGC to develop a project execution strategy that delivers capital efficiency and schedule certainty to Woodfibre LNG,” said Fluor senior vice-president Pierre Bechelany said in a statement.
