Both companies will provide engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) for the design, fabrication and delivery of the unit for the Cedar LNG project in Kitimat, B.C. The contract is subject to a final investment decision (FID).

“This is a critical milestone on our path towards a FID for Cedar LNG, the first Indigenous majority-owned LNG project in the world. We have secured world-class FLNG expertise and look forward to working with SHI and Black & Veatch to build an LNG facility with one of the cleanest environmental profiles in the world that will usher in a new era of low carbon, sustainable LNG production,” Cedar LNG CEO Doug Arnell said in a statement.

Cedar LNG now has major regulatory approvals, signed memorandums of understanding for long-term liquefaction services for the project’s total LNG capacity, and is at an advanced stage of planning and development with a FID expected by the end of the first quarter 2024, a release said.

The Cedar LNG Project is a partnership between the Haisla Nation and Pembina Pipeline Corporation to develop a floating liquefied natural gas facility in Kitimat.
