Petronas-led Pacific NorthWest LNG project in Canada said it will be conducting further investigative work on overall project design this summer and fall.
The work will include collecting bore hole samples on Lelu Island, and in the marine environment and near shore in the area where the marine infrastructure is proposed to be located, Pacific NorthWest LNG said on Monday.
“The investigative work is not the start of construction, nor is it related to the regulatory process,” it added.
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.
