Siemens Energy to power the world’s lowest-emission LNG facility

Above: Woodfibre LNG will be powered by clean, renewable hydroelectric power.

The environmentally friendly LNG facility will be located at the site of a former pulp and paper operation.  It will be sized for 2.1 million tonnes per annum and utilize clean, renewable hydroelectricity, reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by more than 80%.  This will make the plant one of the lowest emission LNG export facilities in the world.  It will also support global decarbonization with exports to Asian economies that are currently driven by coal.   
Rich Voorberg, president of Siemens Energy for North America said “When it comes to the energy transition, we know that natural gas will be part of the answer.  We are proud of our ability to bring end-to-end solutions to industry leading clean energy projects like this one and view the Woodfibre LNG plant as playing an instrumental role in the energy transition here in North America.” 
“Woodfibre LNG is working to incorporate a sustainable approach into as many aspects of our project’s engineering and design as possible,” said company president Christine Kennedy. “This includes using safe, efficient equipment for the LNG refrigeration process – like that which Siemens Energy will supply – to build what will become the world’s lowest-emission LNG export facility.”
The project is expected to reach substantial completion in 2027 and begin commercial operation by September of that year.  Once completed, it is expected to provide over 100 long-term family-supporting jobs.
