CEAA Allocates Funds for Prince Rupert LNG Environmental Assessment

The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency has allocated a total of $241,036 to eight applicants to support their participation in the federal environmental assessment of the proposed Prince Rupert 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.

This project is being assessed using a science-based approach. If it is permitted to proceed to the next phase, it will continue to be subject to Canada’s strong environmental laws, rigorous enforcement and follow-up, and increased fines.

Prince Rupert LNG proposes to develop an LNG facility on Ridley Island at the Port of Prince Rupert in British Columbia. The proposed project includes the construction of a natural gas liquefaction plant and associated port and infrastructure facilities to export liquefied natural gas to international markets. The LNG facility would be developed in two phases, reaching a nominal capacity of up to 21 million tonnes per year.
