The Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board has extended LNG Limited’s construction permit for the Bear Head LNG terminal and companion Bear Paw Pipeline on the Canadian east coast in Nova Scotia.
The board awarded the construction permit extension to LNG Limited on Monday, December 2019.
The Australian firm bought the estimated C$5 billion ($3.8 billion) Nova Scotia project in 2014 from Anadarko for $11 million, and it has held a federal export license for 1.6 bcfpd since 2016.
In 2016, Bear Head proposed building a 1,600-kilometer pipeline to carry Western Canadian gas to the east coast for LNG exports.
Work is underway on securing western gas and pipeline service for deliveries across 3,000 miles of Canada and the United States from Alberta and British Columbia to the proposed terminal site on Nova Scotia’s Atlantic coast.
LNG Limited is also developing the Magnolia LNG project in Louisiana, which received regulatory permits, a construction contract, and completed a supply deal with a power plant in Vietnam.
