LNG Canada in your Community


Thank you for your continued support of LNG Canada. It’s been a busy year, and as we come into the summer months, we want to provide an update on activities you can expect to see and why we need to do them now. All the activities we will be undertaking have been permitted through the regulatory review process, and the safety of our workforce, the community and the environment remain our priority.

While the exact date for a Final Investment Decision (FID) is up to our Joint Venture Partners (JVPs) to make, LNG Canada continues to advance our project to put it in the best place possible should the decision occur later in 2018. Over the summer, we will begin some work that is seasonally sensitive, ensuring we care for and minimize impacts to the environment. Some of this work needs to be started now, to help the project remain on schedule should the JVPs take FID. We will be sharing a lot more detail about these activities at an Open House scheduled for July 31st at Riverlodge. Save the date and join us for a meal and to learn more.

Advancing the Project Pre-FID

LNG Canada recently identified JGC Fluor BC LNG JV (JGC Fluor) as our engineering, procurement and construction contractor. JGC Fluor will be largely responsible for construction of the LNG plant and associated facilities, and a majority of the site preparation should the project move forward post-FID. However, over the summer, LNG Canada will begin work so it is in the best place possible when JGC Fluor takes over construction, keeping to the cost and schedule that lead to its success in the competitive Request for Proposal process.

These are the activities LNG Canada will undertake over
the summer:

These activities will start in early July 2018. Community impacts related to this work will be minimal, but may result in increased traffic and noise. From time-to-time, we may need to remove wood waste that cannot be salvaged through a pre-scheduled open burn, which will be wind and weather dependent and subject to respective permits. We are committed to informing the community of these activities in advance through Facebook and at our Open House scheduled for July 31st at Riverlodge. Please follow us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/LNGCanada to ensure you receive the latest updates.

A Small Workforce to Advance the Project

The number of tradecrafts will be limited with this pre-FID work onsite. You may notice the arrival of additional tradecrafts who will be housed at Civeo-owned Sitka Open Lodge, which will re-open in July.
