Pieridae has submitted responses to the information requests Nova Scotia Environment (NSE) received during the second period of written public comments.
The Environmental Assessment Review Panel will now review the Goldboro EA report and all the information submitted to the Panel, and prepare a panel report and recommendations to the Minister of Environment for decision-making regarding the Goldboro proposal. Based on the Environmental Assessment Review Panel Regulations, Pieridae expects to receive a decision from the Minister of Environment in March 2014.
Goldboro LNG will include a natural gas liquefaction plant and facilities for the storage and export of LNG, including a marine jetty for loading. The facility is anticipated to produce approximately ten million metric tonnes of LNG per year and have on-site storage capacity of 690,000 cubic metres of LNG.
The facility is located adjacent to the Maritimes & Northeast Pipeline, a 1,400-kilometre transmission pipeline system built to transport natural gas between developments in Nova Scotia, Atlantic Canada and the northeastern United States.
