Stewart Energy in the race to export Canadian gas to Asia

Stewart LNG to combine floating and onshore facilities

2B1st_Project_Smart_Explorer_Sales_Pursuit_ToolThe Canada Stewart Energy Group Ltd ( Stewart Energy) is planning to combine floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) production unit with conventional onshore liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant in order to boost the export of natural gas from British Columbia (BC) in western Canada to China.

Registered in Vancouver, BC, Stewart Energy has been created with Chinese founds to take advantage of the accessible natural gas resources in British Columbia to speed up the deliveries into China in a first step and all Asia markets for future growth.

Sitting in the north of British Columbia, Stewart stands at the shortest distance in Canada from China and other Asia markets.

Until the first World War, Stewart was a very active industrial city exporting mining and wood.

Since then, industrial sites remained and just wait to be revived for new facilities.

Stewart also enjoys the Portland Canal and an ice-free port to enable the large LNG carriers to board in deep water.

Stewart Energy project to revive this old industrial city will facilitate the local acceptance and should speed up the implementation of the LNG export terminal.

Stewart Energy to phase up FLNG and five LNG Trains

In order to save time, Stewart Energy is planning to phase up the project with the installation of a floating LNG in a first step and the addition of onshore LNG Trains in multiple steps since the onshore facilities require longer administration approval than a floating unit.

Overall, Stewart Energy submitted an application to the Canada National Energy Board (NEB) for the export of 30 million tonnes per year (t/y) of LNG during a period of 25 years.

 – Moore a near-shore FLNG of 5 million t/y

 – Add five onshore LNG Trains of 5 million t/y in different phases

 – Build onshore LNG storage and marine loading facilities

The FLNG and the LNG Trains will be supplied in gas by a 800 kilometers pipeline to be built, owned and operated by a joint venture between Stewart Energy and a local midstream company.

In order to limit its Stewart LNG project carbon footprint, Stewart Energy is willing to use electrical solution to power the LNG Trains.

To do so, Stewart Energy is negotiating with the utility company BC Hydro the supply of 250 MW electrical power.

Alternatively, Stewart Energy may build its own gas-fired power plant.

Designed to be implemented on fast track, the Stewart FLNG project should load its first shipment in 2017 as the first phase of Stewart Energy LNG export terminal project in British Columbia.
