To Be Constructed By
Dome Petroleum Ltd.
A Calgary, Canada, company recently announced plans to build a new shipyard at an estimated cost of about $250 million (Ca- nadian). William Richards, pres- dent of Dome Petroleum Ltd., said that the "world scale" fa- cility would be used to construct liquefied natural gas (LNG) car- riers and ice-strengthened crude oil tankers.
According to Mr. Richards, the shipyard would have a steel throughput of 60,000 tons annu- ally, and when in full production would have a work force of more than 2,000 persons.
Dome Petroleum has a contract to supply a group of Japanese utilities with about 400 million cubic feet of gas daily beginning in 1985. Initial production at the new shipyard would be LNG tank- ers to carry the Canadian gas to
Japan. A site for the new facility has not yet been selected.
