Foster Wheeler has been awarded a contract for the provision of front-end engineering design and project execution services for a proposed liquefied natural gas export project. Foster Wheeler AG (Nasdaq:FWLT) announced today that a subsidiary of its Global Engineering and Construction Group, in joint venture with affiliates of Chiyoda Corporation, Saipem S.p.A. and WorleyParsons Limited (“CFSW JV”), has been awarded a contract by LNG Canada Development Inc. (“LNG Canada”) for the provision of front-end engineering design (“FEED”) and project execution services for a proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) export project, known as the LNG Canada Project, in Kitimat, British Columbia.

The contract value was not disclosed. Foster Wheeler’s portion of the FEED phase will be included in the company’s second-quarter 2014 bookings.

The LNG Canada Project is planned as a phased development initially comprising two processing trains, each with a production capacity of approximately six million tonnes per annum of LNG, with an opportunity for an additional two trains. The release to proceed with the project execution phase is subject to regulatory approvals and a financial investment decision by LNG Canada, a milestone still a couple of years away.

Roberto Penno, Chief Executive Officer, Foster Wheeler Global Engineering and Construction Group, said, “We are delighted to confirm the award for this major LNG liquefaction development in British Columbia. As part of the CFSW JV, Foster Wheeler brings proven experience in modular design, fabrication and construction for LNG facilities in remote and challenging locations. Together with our joint venture partners, we look forward to working towards the successful design and delivery of this landmark project.”

“We are pleased to be working with Chiyoda, Foster Wheeler, Saipem and WorleyParsons, a group of companies who together have extensive experience in the liquefied natural gas industry,” said Andy Calitz, CEO, LNG Canada. “LNG Canada’s vision is to work collaboratively with First Nations, the local community and other stakeholders, to deliver a project that is safe, reliable and reflective of community interests, and I look forward to us working together to deliver this project’s expected benefits to the surrounding communities and all British Columbians.”

LNG Canada is comprised of Shell Canada Energy (50%), an affiliate of Royal Dutch Shell plc, and affiliates of PetroChina (20%), Korea Gas Corporation (15%) and Mitsubishi Corporation (15%). This operating entity is incorporated and registered under the federal laws of Canada.
