Frequently Asked Questions

General Information

The LNG Canada Project consists of a natural gas receiving and liquefied natural gas (LNG) production facility, as well as a marine terminal with the capacity to accommodate two LNG carriers, a tugboat dock, and LNG loading lines. The facility will also include LNG processing units, storage tanks, a rail yard, water treatment facility, and flare stacks.

The project is located in Kitimat, British Columbia, Canada and is on traditional territory of the Haisla Nation

JGC Fluor (JFJV) is the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contractor hired by LNG Canada to build the project. Phase 1 construction began in December 2018 and is expected to be complete mid-decade.

JGC and Fluor joined together to capitalize on significant LNG and mega project experience. Fluor has over 70 years of Canadian project experience with over 7,500 construction personnel working on Canadian projects in 2017, and JGC has experience in the construction of more than 48 LNG trains globally.

Employment

To view or apply for a position with JFJV or any of our contractors, visit jfjvkitimat.com/careers. All current job opportunities with JFJV and our subcontractors are posted to this web page.

Over the next several years, JFJV will be creating thousands of jobs—both staff and trades—with the LNG Canada Project. At the peak of construction, it’s forecast that there will be approximately 4,500 people working at site on any given day.

The majority of employment opportunities for trades will begin mid-to-late 2020; however, there are several jobs, including staff positions, posted on the JFJV website.

The project work schedule is a 14/7 rotation—14 days of work followed by 7 days off—allowing people to return home for a week. The majority of shifts are 10 hours. Schedules may be adjusted from time to time.

Some local residents (Kitimat, Kitamaat Village, and Terrace) work Monday to Friday with weekends off. This schedule is dependent on work requirements.

For local residents, shuttles serving remote parking facilities will be used to reduce traffic through Kitimat, with pick up locations in Kitimat and Terrace.

For non-local workers, air travel is organized and paid for by JFJV or its subcontractors, between the workers’ home base and the Northwest Regional Airport.

Ground transportation is provided between the Northwest Regional Airport in Terrace, workforce lodge in Kitimat, and project site.

For any questions regarding bussing services, please send an email to LNGC.Site.Bussing@fluor.com

High quality worker accommodation is a key component of the project’s labour approach to attract and retain workers. Initially, the non-local construction workforce will primarily be housed in CIVEO’s Sitka Lodge, while the Cedar Valley Lodge, located on site, is being constructed.

Once complete in mid-2020, the Cedar Valley Lodge will house the majority of the project’s workforce. It will feature single occupancy rooms with ensuite bathrooms, television, and Wi-Fi. Workers will also have access to a wide variety of amenities, including a fitness centre, games room, lounge, and movie theatre.

Local residents will go home after each shift and won’t stay at Cedar Valley Lodge.

Contracting & Procurement

Over the next several years, the LNG Canada Project will provide significant opportunities for small, medium and large businesses. As the EPC contractor, JFJV’s goal is to find the best suppliers and contractors, and provide as many benefits as possible to local communities and First Nations.

Businesses interested in contracting and procurement opportunities must first register online. Visit jfjvkitimat.com/contracts-and-procurement/ and follow the instructions. A list of registered businesses can also be found there.

JFJV will use information provided to understand the goods and/or services companies offer. Companies will then be included in the contracting and procurement register and will be contacted when suitable opportunities are identified.

If selected, companies will be asked to provide more detailed information, as part of the pre-qualification process, in the areas of health, safety, security, environment, historical financial, quality, technical capabilities, and local content. Where pre-qualified and deemed capable of supporting a particular scope of work, a contractor may be included in a request for proposal.

Furthermore, the contracting and procurement register will be provided to companies participating in one of our request for proposal processes.

At any time during the process, feedback is available to unsuccessful companies. Contact contracts@jfjvkitimat.com or procurement@jfjvkitimat.com for more information.
