The last large module has been delivered to the LNG Canada project in Kitimat, a joint venture comprised of Shell, PETRONAS, PetroChina, Mitsubishi Corporation and Korea Gas Corporation. 

The construction of the project is now more than 80% complete and is getting ready to commission, start-up and operate. 

When completed, the facility will consist of a natural gas receiving and LNG production unit, a marine terminal with the capacity to accommodate two LNG carriers, a tugboat dock, and LNG loading lines. It will also include LNG processing units, storage tanks, a rail yard, a water treatment facility, and flare stacks. 

Its production capacity is expected to be 14 million tonnes per annum from the first two trains, with the potential to expand to four trains in the future. 

The first LNG shipment is expected before the middle of the next decade.
