Pembina Pipeline Corp. and the Haisla Nation, partners in development of the proposed 3-million tonne/year Cedar LNG plant, have selected Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) Co. Ltd. and Black & Veatch to provide engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) for the design, fabrication, and delivery of the project's floating LNG production unit (FLNG), subject to final investment decision (FID).
Cedar LNG has received its major regulatory approvals, signed MOU for long-term liquefaction services for the project's total LNG capacity, and is expected to reach FID by end first-quarter 2024. Subject to a positive FID, onshore construction could start as early as second-quarter 2024, with the delivery of the FLNG and substantial completion expected in 2028.
Cedar LNG will source Western Canadian Sedimentary basin natural gas from the Montney shale in northeast British Columbia. Gas will be delivered via TC Energy Corp.’s 2.1-bcfd Coastal GasLink pipeline.
SHI and Black & Veatch had previously performed the project’s front-end engineering and design and last year reached a heads of agreement with Cedar securing the shipyard capacity to finish construction of the FLNG in time for the plant’s targeted completion (OGJ Online, Nov. 17, 2023).
