Pieridae inks deal for Goldboro LNG workforce lodge

Canada’s Pieridae Energy said it signed a deal with Black Diamond and the Nova Scotia Mi’ikmaw First Nations to build a $720 million workforce lodge for its Goldboro LNG project.

The letter of award gives the duo exclusive rights to negotiate the contract to build the lodge and amenities during the four-year construction phase of the Goldboro LNG facility.

The lodge will be home to 5,000 workers who will build the planned multi-billion-dollar LNG facility.

Furthermore, Black Diamond will be responsible for the lodge while the Mi’kmaq would provide hospitality services such as catering, housekeeping and guest services.

This move follows Pieridae’s recent announcement on teaming up with US engineering giant Bechtel to develop the LNG export project.

Under the deal, Bechtel will develop an EPCC execution plan and deliver a final lump sum, turnkey contract price proposal by May 31, 2021.

To remind, Pieridae said in August it was in talks with five firms regarding a lump sum turnkey EPCC contract. This was in response after US engineer KBR backed out of signing the lump sum deal.

The 9.6 mtpa Goldboro project has secured majority of key permits also signing a 20-year contract with Germany’s Uniper.

The deal with Uniper is for all of the volumes from the first 4.8 mtpa Goldboro liquefaction train.

Furthermore, Pieridae has earlier this year delayed the final investment decision on the project due to Covid-19, also renegotiating deadlines with Uniper.

Pieridae now plans to start commercial LNG deliveries to Uniper between August 31st, 2025 and February 28th, 2026.

The new deal also extended the deadline for a FID to June 30, 2021.
