Ausenco, in a joint venture partnership with Peter Kiewit and Weeks Marine, undertook the lump sum offshore EPC contract for the Canaport LNG Terminal near Saint John, NB.

Our scope consisted of the detailed design for a liquefied natural gas jetty to accommodate LNG vessels of up to 270 000 m3 capacity.

The facility includes an access trestle with roadway and pipe support, unloading platform, LNG spill containment system, gangway access tower, berthing and mooring dolphins, catwalks, navigation and docking aids.

In an effort to overcome harsh metocean and geotechnical conditions and to achieve an accelerated schedule, the facility was designed with tubular steel jacket structures for mooring and berthing dolphins and marine bents.

Ausenco was also responsible for the QA/QC during construction of the offshore components of the marine terminal.

This is the first liquefied natural gas terminal in all of Canada and is located in the Bay of Fundy, home of the highest tides in the world.

Ausenco continues to provide various services for the Canaport Terminal including the design of crude oil line supports on the jetty, and a study of the monobuoy mooring system.
