Looks like LNG Canada to go forward: "Andy Calitz, CEO for LNG Canada, tells #GLOBEforum plan is to start construction on Kitimat project 2018, FID documents being prepared." https://twitter.com/nbennett_biv/sta...73694199754752

Fuck yeah! :)

LNG Canada aims for construction start this year

Quote:

“The project in Canada is FID ready and has not been cancelled,” Calitz said in 2016.

At a Globe conference forum on energy transition March 14, Calitz confirmed the company plans to seek a final investment decision from the main partners, which includes Royal Dutch Shell, this year.

Despite skepticism that a large LNG project will ever be built in B.C., both Calitz and Shell senior executives have been telegraphing their intent to move ahead with LNG Canada project for months now, and have said they expect to make a final investment decision in 2018.

So this pipeline would be quite fine with BC but Kinder Morgan is not? Brand new right of way, new terminal, new everything and it's okay but an expansion of a current line is not and existing facilities somehow has less of an effect on the environment? Got it.

I have to assume the BC government will have not choice but to oppose this project too based on that alone.

LeftCoaster Mar 16, 2018 11:02 PM

The difference is what they are carrying, they are most definitely different propositions.

BC has been more accepting of LNG vs crude, both at a provincial government level and public support level.

LNG Canada names Fluor-JGC as prime contractor for B.C. project

Vancouver - April 27, 2018 - The Globe and Mail
https://www.theglobeandmail.com/busi...or-bc-project/

Quote:

LNG Canada has selected an engineering joint venture based in the United States and Japan as the prime contractor for the Shell-led project that is hoping to export liquefied natural gas from British Columbia.

Fluor Corp. of Irving, Tex., and JGC Corp., based in Yokohama, Japan, said Friday that their joint venture won the contract for what the industry calls engineering, procurement and construction (EPC), including plans to build an export terminal in Kitimat in northwest British Columbia.

Sweet.This will happen IMHO - just for the global hedging aspect.

Vaughn Palmer: Horgan confident hurdles will be cleared to build Kitimat LNG terminal

https://vancouversun.com/opinion/col...t-lng-terminal

Quote:

VICTORIA — Premier John Horgan was in an inspirational mood Friday when he addressed the annual convention of the Union of B.C. Municipalities in Whistler....
...Near the end, Horgan rolled out a big-ticket item, when he advised B.C. appears to be on the threshold of a multibillion-dollar investment in liquefied natural gas.

“We are now very, very close to realizing a final investment decision from LNG Canada,” Horgan confided, referring to the export terminal that Shell and partners are proposing to build at Kitimat on the Northwest Coast.

“It will transform Kitimat, most assuredly, but will provide certainty and sustainability for our gas sector, from wellhead to water line.”


By the numbers: 4,500 jobs in the four-year construction phase, a $36 billion investment in the terminal at full build-out, $4.7 billion for the pipeline link to the gas fields in the northeast, and an estimated half a billion dollars a year in direct provincial revenues.

Also announced today:

TransCanada signs all elected First Nations along $4.7-billion gas pipeline route through B.C.

https://vancouversun.com/business/lo...pipeline-route

Quote:

TransCanada has completed benefit agreements with all 20 elected First Nation bands along its Coastal GasLink pipeline route from Dawson Creek to Kitimat.

The pipeline would feed the Shell-led LNG Canada gas plant should it go ahead, with TransCanada saying it’s ready to build.

There has been heightened anticipation recently that LNG Canada is gearing up to make a final investment decision on the up-to $36-billion export terminal in Kitimat.

The company has announced major contracts and has been doing more groundwork in Kitimat, including dredging to deepen a shipping berth. The project also awaits a federal decision on whether major steel-fabricated components for the LNG plant can be shipped tariff-free from China, possibly as early as this month.
At the Union of B.C. Municipalities annual convention on Friday, B.C. Premier John Horgan said he believed the project was close to a positive decision.

TransCanada spokeswoman Jacquelynn Benson said all valid permits were in place for the 650-kilometre $4.7 billion pipeline, necessary fieldwork had been completed and contractors had been hired.

Excellent. That and Woodfibre would be a nice foothold into the industry.

lubicon Sep 17, 2018 7:53 PM

I mentioned this in the Provincial Economies thread as well. Horgan (the BC Gov't) and also the Feds are two remaining hurdles for this project, hopefully this means Horgan is not going to be an obstacle. Not coincidentally (in my opinion) Shell voluntarily gave up all their exploration permits off the west coast of Canada (ie BC) with the president specifically saying 'Hopefully this results in some good will'. Pretty sure he is directing that comment at the various levels of government who will need to approve this project. And a pretty major hint that not all is finalized yet, the project is not a for sure 'go'.

This is another promising one:

Port Alberni LNG project takes major step forward

Times Colonist / The Canadian Press - SEPTEMBER 19, 2018
https://www.timescolonist.com/busine...ard-1.23436675

Quote:

Calling it a major milestone, the developer of a floating liquefied natural gas export facility proposed for Vancouver Island said it has a deal with a Korean shipbuilder for the design of two large at-shore hulls.

Steelhead LNG and partner Huu-ay-aht First Nations said the agreement was signed at the Gastech Conference in Barcelona with Hyundai Heavy Industries to engineer and design the equipment for the Kwispaa LNG Project...


MalcolmTucker Sep 24, 2018 12:30 PM

I thought the BC government had a requirement for domestic builds which is one of the reasons why Wood Fibre changed from a barge design to an on shore one.



It is the way to go though, with record employment and competition for the same workers from the Kitimat project.

I agree. It is quite the obvious double-standard.

It irks me, not because we are taking proactive steps into transporting some of our country's most abundant and valuable resources; it irks me that we have probably lost lots of jobs in Vancouver and now have to put other environments and ports at risk (and at the same time relocate good paying jobs outside of the city).

craneSpotter Sep 26, 2018 9:34 PM

Yes to LNG Canada? Decision poised to be announced next week...

Preparations for an Oct. 5 announcement followed by an LNG Canada event and fireworks the next day are underway in Kitimat, sources say

Hmmm, looks like it will happen. Also sounds like a positive FID for another LNG project will be announced in February 2019. Good times.

No, the regulation includes domestic or foreign sourced modules - constructed on-site or transported to site - floating or onshore. AFAIK

Is that Stingray celebrating?

Metro-One Oct 2, 2018 11:46 PM

So does this make it officially 3 LNG facilities that are moving ahead?

Obviously this (LNG Canada) is the big one, but can somenone please list them out for me? (name, location, stage of development, and cost)

At what stage is the project near Squamish, and the one near Port Alberni?

It may be 2 years too late for them but it really does seem that the Liberls’ investment into LNG is paying off.

Also nice to see the NDP being sensible about LNG. No surprise regarding the reaction from the Greens. They continue to be an anti-industry one issue party.

LeftCoaster Oct 5, 2018 5:41 PM

Two that I know of, Woodfiber near Squamish which is quite small and LNG Canada in Kitimat which is of course massive.

The Port Alberni project (Steelhead) is still in planning phases as far as I know and doesn't have many of the needed approvals, let alone a FID.

Steelhead is starting design, and design will enable the environmental assessment I believe. Chevron's Kitimat one that Petronas was looking at (rumoured, or did it go through?) might have the environmental permits?
