REGIONAL REPORTWEST COAST NORTH AMERICA


he said, adding that it took four days to put up the apartments. All of the company’s project cargo that


comes through the port is moved on flatrack containers. “Occasionally we have larger excavators or solar production machinery,” said Cancilla. Heavy machinery has been slowing, but forklifts and excavators have increased substantially, he added. After years in the doldrums, the mining


segment is showing signs of coming back to life. “We are beginning to see traction in mining,” reported Palmer. Brady Erno, senior manager of sales and


marketing at Fraser Surrey Docks in the port of Vancouver, British Columbia, confirmed there are signals that both the mining and oil and gas businesses are improving, although the latter is still a far cry from its heyday. Most cargo arrives on containerships rather than charter vessels, he noted. Meanwhile, US shale production has


been strong. By mid-November, it was on track for 16 percent growth in 2019. According to energy research and consulting firm Rystad Energy, early guidance for 2020 indicates softer capital expenditure budgets and a strong focus on cashflow, but nevertheless US shale production is expected to expand again.


Offshore drilling The offshore drilling market has been rocky, marked by consolidation, restructuring and some bankruptcies, observed Palmer. Part of the growth that Crane Worldwide Logistics has seen was due to lack of inventory. “Because of tightening of day rates and


contracts, there is more opportunity. Inventory is slim,” he said. Production in the Alberta oilsands is still


stuck in low gear. At the Stewart World Port, Canada’s northernmost ice-free port on the Pacific coast, oil and gas traffic has been slow. “We have had cargo to maintain flows and production, but not for bigger projects,” said Brad Pettit, port president. Oil and gas shipments through the Fraser


Surrey Docks have been for the most part related to maintenance. “For the last few years we have not had the big shipments,” said Erno. The picture has been brighter for


gas-related traffic. Pipe sections have come in for the coastal gas link pipeline to the Kitimat LNG project. This has gone on for “a good chunk of 2019”, Pettit said. Some traffic for the Kitimat project is


going to move through the port of Longview in southwest Washington state. “We will have Canadian LNG traffic happening here soon,” said Nelson-Cooley, noting that

construction of the first phase of the Kitimat project is starting. The port of Vancouver, USA, is also


handling shipments for the Canadian energy market. In 2019, about 90,000 tonnes of pipe was shipped through the port. “We have ample laydown area here. They


do not have that in Vancouver, British Columbia,” claimed Strogen. In the USA the production,


consumption and export of natural gas hit record levels in 2018, with production up

12 percent. Production of several new LNG facilities got under way, but the outlook is less bright than a year ago. A worldwide glut of natural gas has


prompted predictions that prices may slump in 2020 to levels that could force US producers to trim their output, according to investment bank Citigroup.


US export contraction Another banking group, Morgan Stanley, estimates that US exports may shrink by as much as 2.7 billion cu ft per day in the second or third quarter of the year ahead – about half the current US export volume. Crane Worldwide said that it is looking to
