Pieridae lets FEED contract for Goldboro LNG development

Pieridae Energy (Canada) Ltd. has let a front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract to CB&I for the Goldboro LNG project in Guysborough County, NS.

CB&I will design and engineer two LNG liquefaction trains and associated facilities for the engineering, procurement, and construction phase.

Goldboro LNG will produce as much as 10 million tonnes/year of LNG and will have 690,000 cu m of LNG in onsite storage capacity. Construction on Goldsboro LNG could begin next year with operations targeted for 2019 (OGJ Online, Apr. 7, 2014). Plans for the project were announced in 2012 (OGJ Online, Oct. 24, 2012).

The project will serve as North America’s closest mainland LNG export terminal to Europe and India.

Pieridae is in advanced discussions with several natural gas producers, pipeline operators, and LNG customers. The company in June 2013 entered into a 20-year sales agreement with E.On Global Commodities SE for delivery of 5 million tpy of LNG.
