Black & Veatch, SHI to move ahead with construction of Cedar LNG project

Black & Veatch and Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) are set to start construction on the Cedar LNG project, a floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) project in Kitimat, British Columbia, Canada.

To be built within the traditional territory of the Haisla Nation, the FLNG project will have a capacity to export three million tonnes per year (Mtpa) of LNG.

It will be the first FLNG export facility in Canada. The project is expected to have low carbon intensity with renewable electricity powering essential components such as refrigeration compressors, boil-off gas compressors, and six centrifugal pumps.

“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.”
