Oregon LNG facility to be constructed by KBJ

Jordan Cove LNG announced its selection of KBJ, a joint venture partnership between Kiewit Energy Group Inc., Black and Veatch Construction, Inc., and JGC US Projects, LLC to engineer and construct Jordan Cove LNG’s LNG export terminal in Coos Bay, Oregon.

The facility, which will provide faster access to Asian customers for U.S. natural gas, will be situated on a 400 acre industrial site on the northern portion of the lower Coos Bay. Construction is expected to last approximately 53 months—and the facility will be capable of exporting 7.8 million tons of LNG per year with 320,000 cubic meters of storage capacity.

Jordan Cove received approval for its pre-filing in early 2017 for the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission—allowing it to move through the federal permitting process despite previous FERC hardships. The facility will connect to the Pacific Connector gas pipeline which extends northwest from Malin, Oregon, which is capable of transporting approximately 1 Bcf per day.

JCG and Black & Veatch will be charged with the engineering, procurement, and module fabrication for the LNG project—with Kiewit assuming responsibility for managing the construction of the facility.

The U.S. law firm King & Spalding was responsible for drafting and negotiating contracts concerning the facility and its construction.
