Woodfibre LNG informed that the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office (EAO) has issued an environmental assessment certificate for its proposed LNG export project near Squamish, British Columbia.
Woodfibre LNG project is undergoing a substituted environmental assessment process, whereby the BC EAO coordinates the review process on behalf of both the EAO and the Canadian Environment Assessment Agency (CEAA), the company’s statement reveals.
The Woodfibre LNG project comprises construction and operation of a gas processing and liquefaction facility to produce approximately 2.1 million tonnes per annum of LNG, associated storage capacity of 250,000 m3, and export infrastructure.
The project must meet all provincial and federal requirements, including EAO conditions, to manage potential effects associated with it.
A federal government decision on the LNG project is expected later this year.
