Work on the LNG Canada Project is well underway and JGC Fluor will continue to ramp up construction activities in 2020, including piling throughout the project site. Piles (steel poles or sheets) are being used as deep foundations to ensure the stability of temporary and permanent infrastructure.
Piling began in multiple areas of the project in 2019, including for the construction of Cedar Valley Lodge, Anderson Creek Bridge, Moore Creek Bridge, the Materials Offloading Facility, and the twinning of Alcan Bridge.
In the last week of January, JFJV will begin its primary piling program for the LNG processing plant, followed by other scopes including the plant perimeter wall, LNG storage tank, loading line, and shipping berth.
As part of this work, piling will occur between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m.—seven days per week—and is expected to be complete in mid 2021. Area residents may hear limited noise from the activity.
