Aurora LNG evaluating Digsby Island site

Aurora LNG evaluating Digsby Island site

One of British Columbia’s natural gas export proposals, Aurora LNG, will move forward with site evaluation work for a potential LNG project at Digby Island.

At Aurora LNG’s request, the B.C. Province has agreed to transfer the sole proponent agreement (SPA) from the northern portion of Grassy Point to Digby Island, which the company has identified as more suitable site for an export facility.

Under the pre-existing SPA with Aurora LNG, the Province has collected two non-refundable payments totalling $18 million, B.C.’s Ministry of Natural Gas Development said in a statement on Tuesday.

The project is planned to occur in phases with an initial capacity between 10 and 12 mtpa of LNG from two trains with the first shipment expected in 2021 to 2023 time frame. The expansion plans for two additional trains and storage facilities pushing the capacity up to between 20 and 24 mtpa of LNG.

Aurora LNG is a joint venture between Nexen Energy, a CNOOC unit, Inpex and JGC Exploration Canada.
