The Kitimat LNG Project is a 50/50 joint venture between Chevron Canada Limited (Chevron) and Woodside Energy International (Canada) Limited (Woodside) through the entire LNG value chain, from natural gas resource development and gas pipeline transmission, to LNG liquefaction, and shipping LNG to end customers. This includes Chevron-Woodside’s ownership in a world-class natural gas resource at the Liard and Horn River basins in northeastern British Columbia that will provide the necessary gas supply to the Kitimat LNG facility.
Chevron and Woodside have extensive global experience in designing, constructing and operating world class LNG facilities, and collectively operate almost 20 percent of global LNG production. In addition to Kitimat LNG, Chevron and Woodside are co-venture partners in the Wheatstone LNG and Northwest Shelf LNG assets in Australia.
Chevron is the operator of the entire proposed Kitimat LNG Project, including the upstream resource assets in the Liard (366,944 acres, 1,485 sq km) and Horn River (220,000 acres, 890 sq km) basins in northeastern B.C., and project downstream components including the Pacific Trail Pipeline and the natural gas liquefaction facility at Bish Cove near Kitimat. Together with Woodside, we look forward to continuing to build on the strong relationships that have been established by the project to date across Northern British Columbia.
The engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) consortium of JGC/Fluor has been selected for the LNG facility located at Bish Cove near Kitimat B.C.
working with first nations
Chevron and Woodside are committed to partnering with Indigenous communities.
Kitimat LNG has unique and precedent-setting benefit agreements with the Haisla Nation for the LNG Plant, and with all 16 First Nations along the proposed Pacific Trail Pipeline route through the First Nations Limited Partnership (FNLP). Each agreement includes training, employment, contracting and procurement, environmental stewardship and financial benefit commitments to our First Nation partners.
Kitimat LNG continues to work with additional First Nations groups to ensure that they also have an opportunity to participate and benefit from the project.
