Canada delays PNW LNG EA decision

Canada: government delays PNW LNG EA deicision

Canada’s minister of environment and climate change, Catherine McKenna extended the decision deadline for the multi-billion dollar Petronas-led Pacific NorthWest LNG project on Lelu Island.

Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency is seeking additional information from Pacific NorthWest LNG for the assessment process of the proposed project in British Columbia, the agency said in a statement on Saturday.

According to the agency’s statement, on March 4, it reviewed new information from Pacific NorthWest LNG that includes additional details about the project and changes to its construction schedule and methods.

Due to the fact that the additional data has to be reviewed, analyzed, and considered in the final environmental assessment report, the agency is requesting information on possible adverse environmental effects of the changes.

Latest request puts the project review on hold until Pacific NorthWest LNG provides the information.

The government intends to make a final decision on the project within that timeframe, once the legislated timeline resumes, the agency said.

The proposed facility will comprise an initial development of two LNG trains of approximately 6 million tons per annum each, and a subsequent development of a third train of approximately 6 mtpa.

Petronas, Sinopec, JAPEX, Indian Oil Corporation and PetroleumBRUNEI are all shareholders in Pacific NorthWest LNG and the associated natural gas supply.
