Public comment sought on LNG Canada export terminal

The proposed LNG Canada Export Terminal Project is a collaboration between Shell, Korea Gas, Mitsubishi, and PetroChina, that would be located in Kitimat. In its expected 25 year lifetime, it would convert approximately 24 million tonnes of natural gas to LNG a year, that would be exported to international markets. Its 25-year LNG export licence was approved in February.
 
The B.C. government has asked for a substituted assessment, meaning theB.C. Environmental Assessment Office would take over if a federal environmental assessment is deemed necessary. The CEAA is accepting public comments on both the substitution request and the need for a federal environmental assessment.
 
Comments must be submitted by April 22, 2013 to:
 
LNG Canada Export Terminal Project
Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency
410-701 West Georgia Street
Vancouver, BC V7Y 1C6
Telephone: 604-666-2431
