Woodfibre LNG wins environmental clearance

Woodfibre LNG wins environmental clearance

Woodfibre LNG informed it has been granted environmental approval from the federal government.

Canada’s minister of environment and climate change Catherine McKenna issued the approval noting that the Woodfibre LNG Project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects, Woodfibre LNG said in a statement issued on Friday.

Following the provincial approval of the project in October 2015, Woodfibre LNG concluded the environmental assessment review process.

The project located at the former Woodfibre pulp mill site, about seven kilometres southwest of Squamish, British Columbia, has a licence to export about 2.1 million tonnes of LNG per year for 25 years. The facility will have associated storage capacity of 250,000 cubic meters and export infrastructure.

According to the company’s website, it expects to load three to four LNG cargoes per month.

The Woodfibre LNG project has to  meet all provincial and federal requirements, including environmental assessment conditions related to pre-construction, construction, operation, and decommissioning.

Additionally, it has to meet all conditions set by the Squamish First Nation Council in its environmental assessment certificate in order to move ahead with the LNG project.

Woodfibre LNG is a subsidiary of Pacific Oil & Gas Limited, which is part of the Singapore-based RGE group of companies.
