With the arrival of its 215th module by ship from its fabrication yard in Zhuhai, China, Fluor Corporation announced that it has completed the module fabrication program on the LNG Canada project in Kitimat. British Columbia, Canada. This significant milestone marks the completion of a critical phase in the construction of a large terminal for the liquefication, storage and loading of liquified natural gas (LNG) for export to global markets.

In the International Gas Union’s annual LNG report, released last week, is states that Canada has the planet’s second-largest pipeline of LNG projects at the “pre-final investment decision” phase. One-quarter of all new liquefaction capacity on the drawing board is in Canada. If all these projects were built, Canada would be exporting three times as much LNG as last year’s largest exporting country, Australia, where 81.4 million tonnes of LNG exports were worth $83.4-billion in 2022. Phase 1 of LNG Canada is expected to be ready in 2025 and report 14 million tonnes of LNG annually.
