Work will include the construction of a 500-meter-long quay wall, an LNG platform and all associated mooring and berthing structures, BESIX said in a statement.

The contract also includes the construction of scour protection, roadways, foundations for buildings, electrical works as well as the installation of marine equipment such as automated navigation aids.

Construction will start in 2019 with the removal of the existing facilities, shoreline protection and current infrastructure. The work will be completed in 2021, the company said.

LNG Canada joint venture partners Shell, PETRONAS, PetroChina, Mitsubishi and KOGAS officially handed off construction to JGC Fluor in April.

The project is expected to start operating in 2024/2025.
