Fluor Corp. has signed a subcontract with JGC America, Inc. to provide construction-related support to the front-end engineering and design (FEED) services for the Woodfibre LNG project in Squamish, British Columbia, Canada, Fluor announced late Thursday.

"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," Pierre Bechelany, Fluor's senior vice president of pipelines and LNG stated in a press release. "Leveraging JGC's extensive LNG experience and Fluor's project execution and construction expertise, we look forward to helping Woodfibre LNG advance this project for the community and British Columbia."

Under the deal with JGC, Fluor will provide construction planning and design services to support the FEED package and engineering, procurement and construction proposal development, the contract winner said. JGC is a FEED contractor for the proposed Woodfibre liquefaction plant and export facility, which would be built on the site of a former pulp mill and would export up to 2.1 million tonnes of LNG per year over a 25-year span.
