LNG Canada expansion to be decided by 2025

Royal Dutch Shell and its partners building a massive liquefied natural gas (LNG) export terminal in Western Canada will decide by 2025 whether to double its capacity, the head of the project said.

The $31 billion LNG Canada project last October became the first major project in five years to be approved, with first exports of the super-chilled fuel planned for 2025.

The second phase of the project will include two new processing lines known as trains that will double the plant’s capacity to 28 million tonnes of LNG per year.
Andy Calitz, LNG Canada chief executive officer, said a final investment decision (FID) on phase 2 will happen before the plant’s initial production starts.

“We want to take FID on phase 2 before LNG flows from phase 1. (The partners) want to have some insight overall on the project before FID,” Calitz told Reuters in an interview at the CERAWeek conference by IHS Markit.

Since LNG Canada was approved, LNG projects were approved in the U.S. Gulf Coast and off the coast of Mauritania and Senegal as producers expect a sharp rise in gas demand, particularly in Asia.

Shell’s partners are Malaysia’s Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas), PetroChina Co Ltd, Korea Gas Corp (KOGAS) and Japan’s Mitsubishi Corp.
