Woodfibre LNG granted temporary environmental review suspension

Woodfibre LNG granted temporary review suspension

Woodfibre LNG said it was granted a temporary suspension of the 180-day environmental assessment review period for its proposed LNG export project.

The review period had been scheduled to end on July 13, 2015, the company informed in a statement.

Woodfibre LNG made the request to allow the company time to further engage Squamish Nation on the conditions of its environmental review of the Woodfibre LNG project and FortisBC Eagle Mountain – Woodfibre gas pipeline expansion project. These conditions, as well as further consultation with Squamish Nation, will become part of a report to the BC Environmental Assessment Office as part of the environmental assessment of the proposed project.

The Woodfibre LNG project entered the 180-day application review phase on January 13, 2015.

The project is undergoing a substituted process whereby the BC Environmental Assessment Office leads the assessment and this substituted process will require both a federal and provincial decision based on the outcome of the provincial regulatory review.
