Fluor Corporation announced that its joint venture with JGC was awarded an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract by Chevron Canada Limited (Chevron) for the proposed Kitimat Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) project in Bish Cove, British Columbia, Canada. Chevron and Apache Canada Limited (Apache) each hold a 50 percent interest in the proposed project.
'We are excited to enter into the next phase of supporting the Kitimat LNG project for Chevron and their partner Apache,' said Peter Oosterveer, president of Fluor's Energy & Chemicals Group. 'Kitimat has the potential to become Canada's first major LNG production and export terminal. Our strategic relationship with JGC was a key to winning this project and is certainly proving to be a differentiator in our markets.'
