SNC-CENMC G.P., a partnership between SNC-Lavalin Inc. and CENMC Canada Inc., an affiliate of Saipem SpA, has been awarded a contract by Canaport LNG Limited Partnership to design and build a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) import and re-gasification terminal in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada.

SNC-Lavalin Inc. and CENMC will jointly carry out the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) for the onshore portion of this world-scale facility, the first constructed in Canada. Work will be carried out from SNC-Lavalin’s offices in Montreal and from project site offices in Saint John.

"This project marks a further milestone for SNC-Lavalin in the growing LNG market sector," said Jean Nehmé, Senior Vice-President and General Manager, Industrial Division, SNC-Lavalin.

The Canaport LNG Terminal includes two LNG storage tanks, each with a nominal capacity of 160,000 m3. The facility, located adjacent to Irving Oil’s existing Canaport terminal, will have an initial send out capacity of one billion standard cubic feet per day of natural gas. Work on the project has started and the terminal is scheduled to be operational in the fourth quarter of 2008.

"We are pleased to be selected for this landmark LNG receiving terminal in Canada," said Pierre Duhaime, Executive Vice-President, SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. "The SNC-Lavalin-CENMC partnership offers demonstrated technical expertise in LNG terminals and a proven track record in the execution of large EPC projects."

Canaport LNG, which will own and operate the terminal, is a limited partnership formed between Repsol YPF, S.A. of Spain and Irving Oil Company Limited of Canada. Repsol YPF is an international oil and gas company, operating in more than 25 countries. Irving Oil is a privately owned energy processing, transporting and marketing company that also operates a 280,000 barrels per day refinery in New Brunswick.
