WORLEYPARSONS’ Canadian arm will team with Chiyoda Corporation, Foster Wheeler and Saipem in a joint venture (CFSW JV) for work on the LNG Canada Project, in Kitimat, British Colombia.

The contract will see the group provide front-end engineering design (FEED) and project execution services for the proposed liquefied natural gas export project at the site.

The LNG Canada Project will initially comprise two processing trains, each with a production capacity of about 6 million tonnes of LNG per year, with a chance for two more.

Proceeding with the project execution phase is subject to a financial investment decision by LNG Canada, still a couple of years away.

LNG Canada is a joint venture between Shell, which has a 50 per cent stake, PetroChina (20%), Korea Gas Corporation (15%) and Mitsubishi Corporation (15%).

WorleyParsons chief executive Andrew Wood said the company was “delighted” to be involved.
