Partners form JV focused on small-scale LNG in Canada

29 May 2014

Stolt-Nielsen Gas Ltd. (SNG), SunLNG Holding Ltd. (SunLNG) and LNGaz Ltd. have agreed to form a new start-up focused on the development of small-scale LNG liquefaction and logistics services in Bécancour, Québec, Canada. The new joint venture, to be named Stolt LNGaz Ltd., will have a Canadian operating subsidiary, Stolt LNGaz Inc. The transaction represents an initial investment of US$ 20 million with SNG owning 50% of the venture.

Stolt LNGaz intends to provide natural gas to remote mining operations and other industrial customers in northeast Canada at a substantially lower cost than diesel and residual fuel oil, which are the primary energy sources today.

Under the current plan, gas delivered via existing pipelines terminating in southeast Canada will be liquefied at a small-scale plant to be constructed by Stolt LNGaz. The fuel will then be transported primarily via LNG carriers to a number of customers and hubs across northeast Canada. Cost advantages are expected to enable surplus production to be exported to northern Europe.

Stolt LNGaz expects the total capital investment to be approximately US$570 million over the next four years in infrastructure and services development, partly funded with debt financing secured by long-term customer contracts.
