B.C. company gets Woodfibre LNG pre-construction contract

Woodfibre LNG site | Submitted

Matcon Environmental Ltd., an environmental and construction service company based in British Columbia, has been awarded the pre-construction contract for the Woodfibre LNG project.

The contract relates to site clean-up before construction on the facility can begin, and covers site remediation through the removal of industrial debris from the area, which is a former pulp mill site. Up to 25 workers will be required to remove the pulp warehouse and creosote pilings.

Woodfibre has not yet awarded contracts for the project’s engineering, procurement and construction, but said this will be done by the end of the year.

Pacific Oil & Gas Limited, Woodfibre’s parent company, made the final investment decision on the $1.6 billion LNG project in November. It will be the first LNG plant to be built in the province that will export B.C. natural gas to Asia.

The project, located near Squamish, is expected to have a total storage capacity of 250,000 cubic metres and produce 2.1 million tonnes of LNG per year.
