Bechtel’s Tank group (Houston) is responsible for the design and procurement of a 1.0 BCF LNG storage tank. Bantrel engineering has coordinated the Chart, TDE, and Bechtel scopes for an overall integrated facility. Bechtel Canada Co. is executing the project under a lump sum agreement with Fortis BC.
Bantrel Constructors Co. (BCC) has been providing construction management and site supervision for the LNG facility expansion project, as well as self performing construction services using its local unionized craft labour. Some small scopes have been managed through specialty sub-contractor & site service contracts.

The majority of the craft was provided on a Direct Hire basis supplemented by local contractors.
The execution strategy included multiple packaged technology skids to economize on cost and schedule.
