OGC grants facility permit to LNG Canada

OGC grants facility permit to LNG Canada

Shell-led LNG Canada joint venture informed it has been granted an LNG facility permit by British Columbia’s Oil and Gas Commission, for its proposed project located near Kitimat. 

The permit brings the joint venture closer to the construction of the proposed LNG project, however, as Andy Calitz, CEO of LNG Canada said in a statement on Tuesday, “the OGC identified several conditions that must be met by LNG Canada to design, construct and operate the project.”

LNG Canada is the first liquefied natural gas project in British Columbia to receive the permit, which focuses on public and environmental safety, and specifies the requirements the project must comply with when designing, constructing and operating the proposed LNG export facility in Kitimat, according to the statement.

Before making the final investment decision, however, LNG Canada must ensure the project is economically viable and meets several other significant milestones including finalizing engineering and cost estimates, supply of labor, and achieving other critical regulatory approvals.

The project, proposed by the joint venture of Shell, PetroChina, Kogas and Mitsubishi Corporation, would initially consist of two 6.5 mtpa LNG production trains with an option to expand the facility with additional two trains.
