Kitimat LNG partners Apache Canada and EOG Resources Canada announced Friday they had awarded KBR the Front End Engineering and Design (FEED) contract for their planned LNG plant.

Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.

“This is another important milestone for Kitimat LNG, taking us a significant step closer in being able to export LNG to Asia-Pacific markets as soon as 2015,” said Janine McArdle, president of Kitimat LNG.

“KBR is a recognized industry leader in LNG developments and brings extensive experience to our project.”

Apache Canada and EOG Canada are in marketing discussions with potential Asia-Pacific LNG customers at the moment and expect to have firm sales commitments in place by the time a final investment decision is made near the end of this year.

Kitimat LNG currently has an application pending for a 20-year export licence before Canada’s National Energy Board.  A hearing on the application is set to be held here  June 7.
