Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency on Monday said it has continued the environmental assessment of the proposed Pacific NorthWest LNG project.
In June 2015, Petronas-led PNW LNG made a conditional final investment decision (FID) which currently only depends on a positive regulatory decision on the project’s environmental assessment by the CEAA.
The regulator said it has continued the review after receiving additional information from PNW LNG, and it is moving towards the finalization of the draft environmental assessment report and draft environmental assessment conditions.
PNW LNG is planning to build an $11 billion LNG export facility on Lelu Island in the District of Port Edward, British Columbia.
The proposed facility will comprise an initial development of two LNG trains of approximately 6 million tonnes 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.
