Boskalis dredging to help develop LNG Canada
Royal Boskalis Westminster will carry out EUR100m dredging activities for the development of the first large-scale LNG export facility in Kitimat Canada.
The dredging scope includes the removal and remediation of contaminated and non-contaminated sediments at the site of the future facility to provide the required physical space and marine access. For these activities, expected to continue into 2020, Boskalis will deploy a medium-sized trailing suction hopper dredger, cutter suction dredger, backhoe dredger and a crane barge.
Following a Final Investment Decision (FID) for the facility, Andy Calitz, CEO of LNG Canada, said: “This decision showcases how industrial development can co-exist with environmental stewardship and Indigenous interests.”
The Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada said the project “represents the single largest private sector investment project in Canadian history.”
Boskalis was involved from the early stages of the development, illustrating the early cyclical exposure dredging has on green field LNG developments.
LNG Canada is a joint venture comprised of Royal Dutch Shell, Petronas, PetroChina, Mitsubishi and Korea Gas Corporation. The liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility will initially consist of two LNG processing units with the first LNG expected to be processed before the middle of the next decade.
