EnerMech clinches Canadian LNG gig

A unit of EnerMech has secured a contract to deliver its mechanical pre-commissioning and commissioning services to a large LNG facility in British Columbia, Canada.

This new award marks the first time the global integrated solutions company has secured a contract for its niche mechanical services expertise in the region, EnerMech said in a statement.

Under the contract, EnerMech Canada will roll out its integrated project management and delivery solution specifically developed to enhance efficiencies across the project.

The core capabilities work scopes include temporary commissioning utilities, valve calibration and testing, pneumatic and hydraulic testing of piping systems, as well as pre-start up flushing of rotating equipment lubrication systems.

Also, the contract includes chemical cleaning of process systems and operational pressure testing, and drying and inerting of low temperature process systems.

“As our first pre-commissioning and commissioning contract in the region, this is a strategically important win for EnerMech as we look to increase our foothold as a specialist services provider for LNG production, storage and loading projects,” EnerMech CEO, Christian Brown, said in the statement.

EnerMech did not provide the price tag of the contract or the name of the project.

LNG Canada

The only large-scale LNG export project under construction in Canada’s British Columbia is the Shell-Led LNG Canada project.

According to LNG Canada’s main contractor JGC Fluor, EnerMech Canada won the pre-commissioning and commissioning contract in November 2022.

The first phase of the LNG Canada project includes building two liquefaction trains with a capacity of 14 mtpa.

Moreover, the first phase of the plant is more than 80 percent complete, while TC Energy’s Coastal GasLink pipeline, which will deliver gas to the facility, is more than 84 percent complete.

Shell and its partners in the project expect to deliver the first cargo by the middle of this decade, and they are also evaluating the second phase of the project.

Other partners include Malaysia’s Petronas, PetroChina, Japan’s Mitsubishi Corporation, and South Korea’s Kogas.
