Woodfibre LNG Limited announced that Sukwi7 Contracting Limited Partnership has been selected as the contractor to remove old pulp mill structures and infrastructure along the foreshore of the former Woodfibre pulp mill site near Squamish, British Columbia, Canada, as the company said in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The cleanup and demolition work is being carried out by Sukwi7 Contracting Limited Partnership and its subcontractor Vancouver Pile Driving Ltd. The work began on August 7, 2018, and will continue for approximately six months. It will result in the direct employment of 25 people at the Woodfibre site.
The Woodfibre LNG Project is located approximately 7 km west-southwest of Squamish, British Columbia. It involves the construction and operation of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility on the previous Woodfibre pulp mill site, which would have a storage capacity of 250,000 m3 and would produce approximately 2.1 million tonnes per year of LNG. Woodfibre LNG Limited is a privately held Canadian company based in Vancouver, and a subsidiary of Pacific Oil & Gas Limited, which is part of the Singapore-based RGE group of companies.
