KBJ Selected by Jordan Cove LNG to Provide
Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) Services

Yokohama, Japan — KBJ, a joint venture partnership comprised of Kiewit Energy Group Inc., Black & Veatch Construction, Inc., and JGC US Projects, LLC has been selected by Jordan Cove LNG to engineer and construct an LNG export terminal in Coos Bay, Oregon.

The project will utilize Black & Veatch’s proven PRICO® technology, which is well-suited for the size and location of the project. JGC, a leader in LNG project execution and modularization, will work closely with Black & Veatch to perform the engineering, procurement and module fabrication for the project. Kiewit, a direct hire union construction contractor with significant Pacific Northwest experience, will manage the construction of the facility. 

The proposed Jordan Cove LNG terminal is located on a 400-acre, greenfield industrial site on the North Spit of lower Coos Bay. It will be the first and most advanced LNG export terminal project on the west coast of North America.

“The Jordan Cove LNG export terminal reflects extensive, detailed engineering design, planning and innovation,” said Tom Shelby, project executive for KBJ. “We commend the Jordan Cove team on their steadfast commitment to this project and are honored to serve as the EPC contractor.”

“The selection of the EPC contractor is a major milestone in the development of Jordan Cove and is the culmination of two years of extensive engineering work,” said Don Althoff, CEO of Veresen Inc. “Kiewit and Black & Veatch have been valued service providers to the project since its inception and we are pleased to involve JGC, a world class engineering firm with significant LNG experience.”

The Jordan Cove project will be the largest single, private investment in the history of southern Oregon, benefitting the region and its residents through hundreds of millions of dollars in spending and tax revenue. 

The Jordan Cove LNG terminal is projected to produce a maximum of 7.8 million tons per annum for export, with a majority of the LNG going to Pacific Rim countries, including Japan. It also includes approximately 320,000 cubic meters of storage capacity and deep-water marine facilities. The final investment decision is anticipated to be in 2019, with an expected in-service date of 2024.
