Black & Veatch and its partner, South Korea’s Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI), have received a contract to design the proposed Ksi Lisims liquefied natural gas (LNG) nearshore floating production facility in Canada.

The LNG project, which is due to be commissioned in 2028, will be built at Wil Milit, north of Prince Rupert, British Colombia, near the Nisga’a village of Gingolx.

Under the contract, Black & Veatch and SHI will provide front-end engineering design (FEED) services for the LNG project.

Black & Veatch said in a statement: “Through connection with British Columbia’s renewable hydroelectric grid and use of innovative design features, the project’s greenhouse gas emissions will be 90 percent lower than conventional LNG facilities.”

The project, combined with a credible offset management plan, is expected to be net zero by the end of this decade.

Being developed jointly by Western LNG, the Nisga’a Nation and Rockies LNG, the Ksi Lisims LNG natural gas liquefaction and marine terminal project will be capable of producing 12 million tonnes of low-cost LNG annually. The project will be one of the most significant indigenous-led infrastructure projects in Canadian history.
