The maximum amount annually will be 1.8 million tonnes of LNG, equal to approximately 2.5 billion m³ of natural gas.

BC LNG's proposal was based around a co-operative of natural gas producers, marketers and LNG buyers, in which members will submit bids to liquefy natural gas or purchase LNG. There are currently 13 parties involved, with additional members possible.

The Energy Board determined the quantity of gas proposed was reasonable to meet demands and will not cause problems for Canadian energy needs.

Other licences, including one by the KM LNG Operating General Partnership for 200 million tonnes over 20 years, have also been approved for Kitimat.
