Cryopeak LNG Solutions Corporation (Cryopeak), based in Richmond BC, has begun construction of a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) production facility located in Fort Nelson, BC, capable of producing up to 90,000 gallons of LNG per day. Cryopeak’s new LNG facility is the first fully funded and permitted LNG production facility in the Fort Nelson area.
The production facility will be the closest LNG production point to northern Canada and portions of Alaska. A key feature of the plant design incorporates a new truck loading system that optimizes the loading of Cryopeak’s fleet of LNG Super-B tankers. The plant will be modular in its design with minimal installation requirements at the site.
This project marks an important breakthrough for energy supply to Northern Canada. It allows communities and remote industries to secure a lower cost and a more environmentally sustainable fuel source.
Business opportunities for local construction workers, service companies, and operations personnel will become available for the construction of the facility, and for the distribution of LNG to Northern Canada from a new transportation hub, located within the municipality of Fort Nelson.
