VANCOUVER, B.C. – Steelhead LNG and the Huu-ay-aht First Nations announced Monday that they have narrowed the field of bidders to complete front-end engineering and design work on the proposed Kwispaa LNG project.

The proposed project would be located on the west coast of Vancouver Island, with a license to export up to 24 million tonnes a year of liquefied natural gas for 25 years. The company says it forecasts initial production of 12 million tonnes per year will begin in 2024.

Following a rigorous Expression of Interest process, the company said that four engineering, procurement and construction contractors have been shortlisted. The four are a partnership of Black & Veatch, Samsung Heavy Industries, and PCL Industrial Management Inc.; a partnership comprised of CB&I and Offshore Oil Engineering Co., Ltd.; KBR; and TechnipFMC.

Steelhead said it expects to issue Invitations to Tender in the second quarter of this year. From there, two successful bidders will be selected to carry out front-end engineering and design work starting in the third quarter of 2018.
