LNG Canada temporarily slashes workforce

LNG Canada, the Shell-led multibillion-dollar project, has temporarily reduced the number of workers at its site in Kitimat to help reduce the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

LNG Canada will reduce workforce by about 50 percent leaving only personnel working on essential activities at the Kitimat site in British Columbia.

“Despite the necessary workforce reductions, some essential work scopes will progress, such as the construction of our materials offloading facility,” LNG Canada said.

Shell and its joint venture partners have taken a final investment decision on this large LNG export project back in October 2018.

Besides Shell, LNG Canada partners include Malaysia’s Petronas, PetroChina, Japan’s Mitsubishi Corporation and Kogas of South Korea.

The joint venture of JGC-Fluor Corporation has been selected as the project’s engineering, procurement and construction contractor.

LNG Canada will initially include two trains or processing units, that will receive and process natural gas, converting it into LNG ready for shipping.

These two units will have the capacity to produce 14 million tonnes of LNG per year.

The project, worth more than $30 billion, is one of the largest mega projects in Canadian history.
