LR secures contract for LNG Canada export terminal project

Lloyd’s Register (LR) has secured a 55-month LNG contract to support LNG Canada with the construction and delivery of a new LNG liquefaction plant and export terminal in Kitimat, BC, Canada.

Classification society LR will perform third-party verification and Canadian Registration Number (CRN) services during the pre-commissioning, commissioning and start-up phases of the project.

LR said it is the only third-party verifier working on Canadian LNG projects, following a competitive tender process.

“Winning this major project demonstrates LR’s strong capability and long history in the LNG space, following recent wins with Goldboro, Bearhead and LNG Canada, three of the largest LNG projects in Canada makes LR the preferred classification society to work with in Canada,” said John Hicks, LR president of Americas marine and offshore.

LR’d third-party verification services will ensure that individual components have been constructed and tested in accordance with the quality assurance programme expected by Liquefied Natural Gas Facility Regulation (LNGFR).

For the CRN services, LR will use a British Columbia Alternative Safety Approach to demonstrate compliance with the power, boiler, pressure vessel and refrigeration safety regulation.

LR will also validate Technical Integrity Verification plans for engineering, fabrication and commissioning, and the Change Management Plan (CMP) for the design and construction phases.

Additionally, LR will assist in developing a complete life cycle Pressure Equipment Safety Management Plan, from vendor selection through to the module yard, as well as the final handover to LNG Canada at the Kitimat Site.
