In yet one more move signalling the possibility of a positive final investment decision may be nearing for Kitimat’s proposed LNG Canada facility, Black Diamond Group announced on July 16 that it has been conditionally awarded a $42.5 million camp contract for pipeline construction.

“We are excited that Black Diamond has been selected to support this major Canadian LNG project and we believe our large fleet of high-quality accommodation assets leaves us well positioned for additional associated opportunities,” said Trevor Haynes, President and CEO of Black Diamond Group.

“We believe this contract award will contribute significant value to our indigenous partners, our shareholders and to our customer.”

The company’s Workforce Solutions business unit will provide remote accommodations for the construction of the proposed Coastal GasLink pipeline project.

The contract is still conditional upon a positive final investment decision by LNG Canada’s joint partnership.

“In connection with its indigenous partnership with the West Moberly First Nations, the company has conditionally secured a 908-bed turnkey camp contract for 27 months to service the construction of the project,” Black Diamond stated in their announcement.

“Pipeline construction is expected to begin in early 2019 and first revenue is anticipated concurrently. The camp will be constructed utilizing the company’s existing accommodation assets and any associated new capital investment required is expected to be nominal.”
