Canada: CEAA Allocates Funding for Pacific Northwest LNG Environmental Assessment

The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency has allocated a total of $312,636 to 12 applicants to support their participation in the federal environmental assessment of the proposed Pacific NorthWest LNG Project located in British Columbia.

This funding was made available to the public and Aboriginal groups through the Participant Funding Program administered by the Agency. It will enable participation in upcoming steps of the environmental assessment, which include reviewing and providing comments on the Environmental Impact Statement and the draft Environmental Assessment Report.

As part of the strengthened and modernized Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012 put in place to support the government’s Responsible Resource Development Initiative, the Agency is conducting a federal environmental assessment of this project.

The Proposed Project

Pacific NorthWest LNG Ltd. is proposing to construct and operate a liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility and marine terminal near Prince Rupert, within the District of Port Edward. The Pacific NorthWest LNG facility would be located on Lelu Island. The proposed project would convert natural gas to LNG for export to Pacific Rim markets in Asia.

The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency administers the federal environmental assessment process, which identifies the environmental effects of proposed projects and measures to address those effects, in support of sustainable development.
