Black & Veatch receives full NTP for Cedar LNG

Global engineering firm Black & Veatch (B&V) said April 11 it and its partner Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) had received full notice to proceed (NTP) on the construction of Cedar LNG’s floating liquefaction facility, just a week after Cedar LNG had issued a limited NTP.

Black & Veatch will be responsible for complete topsides design and equipment supply for the 3.3mn tonnes/year floating LNG facility, which will incorporate B&V’s PRICO® liquefaction technology. SHI will be providing the hull with the containment system and fabrication and integration of all topsides modules at its yards in South Korea.

The near-shore export facility, which will be located on Haisla Nation territories in BC’s Douglas Channel, will feature electric-driven equipment powered by renewable energy, making it one of the lowest-carbon-intensity LNG facilities in the world.

“Black & Veatch is committed to helping our clients and the communities they serve make meaningful progress on their decarbonisation journey,” said Laszlo von Lazar, president of Black & Veatch’s Energy and Process Industries business. “The Cedar LNG project represents important first steps toward reducing carbon emissions through lower-carbon LNG facilities, which can supply customers looking to move away from more carbon-intensive feedstocks.”

Cedar LNG is a partnership of Haisla Nation and Calgary-based Pembina Pipeline. A final investment decision on the US$3.4bn project is expected by the middle of this year.
