Bechtel builds billon-cubic-foot LNG tank

22 Oct 14 Bechtel has begun construction work to expand a liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant in Canada, including building a new one-billion-cubic-foot full-containment storage tank.

The engineering, procurement, and construction contract at FortisBC’s Tilbury LNG facility in British Columboa will add approximately 46,000m3 of LNG storage. It will increase the plant's liquefaction capacity to 1,740m3 per day to meet the growing LNG demands of the transportation sector, remote communities and industry in British Columbia. Bechtel also is responsible for the startup and commissioning of the new liquefaction facility.

“This is an important project for the region, and we will draw upon our global LNG experience to safely and successfully expand the Tilbury facility,” said Jack Futcher, president of Bechtel’s Oil, Gas & Chemicals business unit. 

Construction is planned to be completed in November 2016.
