June 21, 2023 [LNG Prime]- The Shell-led LNG Canada project is moving towards completing Canada’s first liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility.


LNG Canada posted a construction update last week on the first phase of the giant LNG project, which is more than 80 percent complete.

The project recently took delivery of its last large modules from China.

These modules are part of the first phase of the LNG Canada project which includes building two liquefaction trains with a capacity of 14 mtpa.

Shell and its partners in the project expect to deliver the first cargo by the middle of this decade, and they are also evaluating the second phase of the project.

Other partners include Malaysia’s Petronas, PetroChina, Japan’s Mitsubishi Corporation, and South Korea’s Kogas.

The project’s main contractor is JGC Fluor.

LNG tank test


According to LNG Canada, most of the work in the coming months will be about completions as the project readies for the operational phase.

The biggest event that will take place next is hydrotesting the plant’s giant 225,000-cbm LNG tank.

LNG Canada will pump about 170,000 cbm of water into the tank to make sure it maintains integrity, it said.

It claims that this is the biggest tank in Canada.

As per the utilities area, LNG Canada has installed the majority of the pipe racks and is waiting for final modules to arrive at the site.

In ISBL, all major modules are now in and LNG Canada is currently hooking up modules and piping, while the non-process buildings should be completed during this quarter, LNG Canada said.

LNG Canada also completed the steel structure on the 122 meters long flare and expects to complete piping and other work later this summer, while it completed the foundation of the jetty and is installing the modules and mechanical hookups.

In addition, LNG Canada is working on a tug berth to welcome a fleet of dual-fuel and electric tugs in 2024.

LNG Canada says the new tug berth is essential to operation of the escort tugs and harbor tugs that will provide ship-assist and escort towing services to LNG carriers calling at LNG Canada’s export facility.
