Siemens Energy scores Woodfibre LNG gig

Canada’s Woodfibre LNG, a unit of Pacific Energy, has awarded a contract to Siemens Energy to work on its 2.1 mtpa LNG terminal in British Columbia.

Siemens Energy said in a statement on Tuesday it had been selected as the single solution supplier for the all-electric Woodfibre LNG project near Squamish.

The scope includes all equipment associated with the main refrigeration trains including compressors, synchronous motors, variable speed drives, converter transformers, harmonic filters and numerous powerhouses.

The main refrigeration compressor trains are one of the components of the liquefaction process that produces the chilled fuel.

Siemens Energy did not reveal the price tag of the contract.

In April, Woodfibre LNG said it had issued a notice to proceed to US contractor McDermott to start work on the project. It also said it would spend $500 million on its planned terminal.

Woodfibre LNG has not yet announced a final investment decision on the plant that will be powered with renewable hydroelectricity.

It expects to reach substantial completion of the project in 2027 and begin commercial operation by September of that year.
