LNG infrastructure solutions provider Black & Veatch, in addition to Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) of South Korea, have been awarded a FEED contract for the Ksi Lisims LNG floating production facility in Canada, according to a July 10 press release.

The Ksi Lisims project was developed by Western LNG, the Nisga’a Nation and Rockies LNG and will be hosted by the Nisga’a Nation on their wholly-owned treaty land. At launch, the project is designed to produce up to 12 million metric tons of LNG per year for export to overseas markets.

Upon completion, the project will have among the lowest in terms of unit carbon emissions when it comes to large-scale LNG export projects across the globe. Its greenhouse gas emissions will be approximately 90% lower than conventional LNG facilities. The Ksi Lisims project will provide energy markets with low-carbon LNG to reduce the dependence on coal. It is planned to be net-zero by 2030.
