TRS Staffing Solutions (TRS) Canada is supporting the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) of the LNG Canada Project, located in Kitimat BC.
The project final investment decision of $40B announced in October 2018, represented the largest private sector investment in Canadian history. The current planned in-service date of the $18B gas liquefaction and storage plant is mid-decade.
LNG Canada will export Canadian natural gas to Asian markets, and in the process, put Canada on the global map of LNG exporting countries creating a world-class liquefied natural gas (LNG) industry in British Columbia and Canada.
The worldwide demand for liquefied natural gas, or LNG, rose by 12.5% - hitting 359 million tons in 2019, according to Royal Dutch Shell’s annual LNG Outlook report. According to forecasts, this demand is expected to double by 2040 to 700 million tons. The concept of LNG is a real incentive for those who are growing increasingly environmentally conscious. While natural gas is a fossil fuel, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) states that burning it for energy “results in fewer emissions of nearly all types of air pollutants and carbon dioxide (CO2) than burning coal or petroleum products to produce an equal amount of energy.”
The LNG Canada Project has meant a surge in employment; thousands of skilled workers are required during the five-year construction period! In fact, it is expected to employ approximately 7,500 people at the project site during peak of activity. LNG Canada and JGC Fluor Joint Venture, the EPC prime contractor building the project, are both committed to the hiring of local talent as well as throughout British Columbia and Canada.
Economically, LNG is predicted to be a key to Canada’s future. In a report, titled A Rising Tide: The Economic Impact of B.C.’s Liquified Natural Gas Industry, the report predicts that if the LNG project in Kitimat were to expand, LNG in Canada could create 96,550 jobs including 71,000 jobs in B.C. in related employment such as engineering, oil and gas manufacturing, construction engineering and retail. The report also said the LNG industry could increase Canada’s gross domestic product by $11 billion per year.
