The National Energy Board has announced that it will hold a public hearing in Kitimat next month, to consider an application submitted by KM-LNG Operating General Partnership, for a 20-year licence to export natural gas in the form of liquefied natural gas.

The majority of the proposed export gas will come from the shale reserves located in this area Northeast B.C.

If you’re interested in attending the NEB hearing, it is set for 7p.m. to 9p.m. on March 1, at the Riverlodge Recreation Centre in Kitimat, but there will also be a two hour information session prior to that.

The natural gas would be liquefied at the proposed Kitimat LNG Terminal, and transported by tankers to markets primarily located in Asia Pacific.

KM-LNG has requested authorization to export up to 468 billion cubic feet per year, and if the licence is approved by the Board, it would be Canada’s first export licence for liquefied natural gas.
