KBJ selected by Jordan Cove LNG to provide EPC services
YOKOHAMA, Japan — KBJ, a JV 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 PRICO technology, which is well-suited for the size and location of the project. JGC, a company 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 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 MMtpy 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.
The ongoing development of shale gas resources in the US has spurred infrastructure construction for both natural gas processing capacity and LNG export terminals.
Russian natural gas monopoly Gazprom is strengthening its presence in the gas market of the Middle East through the planned construction of an 11-metric-MMtpy–12-metric-MMtpy LNG plant in Iran.
The New LNG Imperative
The shale gas boom established the US as the world’s leading natural gas producer and is responsible for billions of dollars of investments in the US gas processing industry. Since 2012, the US has witnessed unprecedented growth in new gas processing capacity and infrastructure. This rise is due to greater production of domestic shale gas, which is providing cheap, available feedstock to fuel the domestic gas processing, LNG and petrochemical industries. New gas processing projects include the construction of billions of cubic feet per day of new cryogenic and gas processing capacity, NGL fractionators, multi-billion-dollar pipeline infrastructure projects, and the development of millions of tons per year of new LNG export terminal construction.
