HOUSTON, October 25, 2016 – The JGC Group announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary, JGC America, Inc., has been awarded a contract to provide front-end engineering and design (FEED) services for the Woodfibre LNG project in Squamish, British Columbia, Canada.
JGC’s scope includes FEED development and an EPC proposal for the new 2.1 mtpa natural gas liquefaction plant and export facility. The value of the contract was not disclosed.
“This award is a testament to JGC’s long history of bringing technical knowledge, modularization leadership and expertise to LNG projects across the globe,” said Koichi Kawana, president and representative director of JGC Corporation. “We look forward to working closely with the Woodfibre LNG team to deliver a project that achieves their business objectives and contributes to the responsible economic growth of the community and the region.”
