Another liquefied natural gas facility has come forward with an export application submitted to the National Energy Board (NEB). The export application is for the Triton LNG Limited Partnership, a 50-50 joint-venture between AltaGas Ltd. and Idemitsu Canada Corporation.
Triton LNG is the most recently announced plan from a growing list of prospective projects. It is still in the early stages of planning and remains subject to environmental review and approval. The partnership is doing preliminary work for the design and construction of a floating LNG facility. No site has been chosen but Kitimat and Prince Rupert are under consideration.
To date, the NEB has issued export licences to three LNG proponents. The Triton LNG export application joins a list of four other submissions under review.
