Press release from: SGS Industrial Services

In only four months, the Canaport LNG terminal in Saint John, New Brunswick nears completion after SGS Industrial Services verified the 3 cryogenic Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) tanks in accordance with Canadian code CSA Z276-01.

In only four months, the Canaport LNG terminal in Saint John, New Brunswick nears completion after SGS Industrial Services verified the 3 cryogenic Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) tanks in accordance with Canadian code CSA Z276-01.

Canaport LNG in Saint John, is a consortium between Irwing Oil, New Brunswick and Repsol, Spain, constructing the first LNG receiving and regasification terminal in Canada. After four years under construction, the Canaport LNG terminal should begin operations in the second quarter of 2009 and supply natural gas to the Canadian and American markets.

SGS Canada was awarded the contract to review the design of the terminal’s three large LNG cryogenic tanks in accordance with CSA Z276-01, a code set up by the Canadian Standard Association concerning the production, storage and handling of liquid natural gas.

Within three months, all the 426 requirements outlined in the code were matched with the concepts and drawings, calculations were verified as correct and it was confirmed that the LNG tank design complied with the Canadian CSA standard. The final report was issued to the satisfaction of the customer, on time and on budget.

The first Canadian LNG terminal has a capacity of 1 billion cubic feet or 28 million cubic meters of natural gas per day, representing a capital investment of CAD 750 million. A project of this magnitude requires a strong international team in order for it to be completed in such a tight timescale.

SGS Industrial Services provides not only design verification of LNG tanks but also offers support services related to mechanical, piping, and electrical systems design, such as mechanical and process design review, fire and safety systems analysis, and instrumentation and automation analysis and review.

Our teams of engineers and technicians provide independent inspection, testing, verification and specialised technical services, helping to maintain our client’s reputation for high quality products as well as effectively managing the various risks associated with the production and transportation of LNG in any country in the world.
