KBR WORKING WITH PIERIDAE TO DESIGN & BUILD THE LNG EXPORT FACILITY

KBR is a globally-recognized company that’s been around for 100 years and has built or is building some of the most complex projects in the world.

Pieridae Energy announced in April it would work with KBR to design, cost estimate and ultimately build its Goldboro LNG facility off the coast of Nova Scotia. The cost estimating phase is expected to take the next several months to complete. It will result in a turn-key contract.

The KBR team travelled to Nova Scotia recently to see first-hand where the proposed LNG facility will be built. They were impressed with the site as its base is solid granite. The KBR group also toured the surrounding area, including Sheet Harbour, which could be a great location for a cement plant, staging area and fabrication.

KBR has assigned its ‘A’ team to work on the project. Having come off of a very difficult build in a remote area of Australia constructing the Gorgon LNG facility, the team welcomes the opportunity to work in an ideal location in Nova Scotia.

Goldboro would be Nova Scotia’s largest ever mega-project, creating 3,500 jobs during construction, 200 full time jobs once the plant is built.
