Clough secures Tilbury LNG gig from FortisBC

Canadian utility FortisBC said it has selected Clough as the general contractor for a new project at its Tilbury LNG facility in British Columbia.

Under the deal, Australian engineering firm Clough will manage the design and construction of the Tilbury truck loading expansion project in the Vancouver suburb of Delta.

Furthermore, the $18.5 million expansion project involves the construction of two new truck loading bays to double the facility’s capacity.

The facility currently fills more than 1,000 LNG containers from its two loading bays for transport and overseas customers per year.

The truck loading expansion project will allow FortisBC to better serve those customers as it moves toward its target of reducing its customers’ emissions 30 percent by 2030, it said in a statement.

Launched in 1971, the Tilbury LNG facility already received several upgrades involving storage but also liquefaction facilities.

FortisBC expanded the facility in 2018 with the addition of a new 46,000-cbm tank and 0.25 mtpa liquefaction capacity. The utility has plans for additional liquefaction capacity and a new gas line as part of the first expansion phase.

Besides this, FortisBC has put on the table the second expansion phase to add a 162,000-cbm tank and new liquefaction capacity to produce LNG for marine fueling or overseas export.
