More LNG Activity for NW BC

Kitimat LNG

Two more companies have filed for liquefied natural gas export permits from the National Energy Board.

The BG Group, which has plans to develop an LNG export facility in Prince Rupert, wants to be able to export 21.6 metric tonnes of LNG a year.

Imperial Oil/ExxonMobil Canada Ltd. has applied to export 30 million metric tonnes a year, although it is still assessing where its terminal would be located.

The BC government says the applications, if approved by the NEB, show that the province is on the verge of new economic opportunities.

If approved, there would be a total of five LNG export licences.

Current export licence holders include LNG Canada (Shell and co-venture partners), Kitimat LNG (Chevron/Apache), and Douglas Channel LNG (Texas-based company and Haisla Nation partnership).
