Shell Canada submits LNG Canada plans to environmental agencies

Shell’s plans, which are now among at least a half dozen proposed B.C.LNG developments, include building a natural gas pipeline from the Groundbirch area near Dawson Creek to Kitimat, where the liquefied gas will be loaded onto tankers and shipped to Asia. The LNG Canada project is a venture between Shell and affiliates of Asian companies Mitsubishi, Korea Gas, and PetroChina Investment.

The approval process through the federal Environmental Assessment Agency and B.C.’s Environmental Assessment Office is expected to take up to two years. Recently, B.C.’s environment ministry asked federal environment minister Peter Kent to allow the province to undertake much of the review under a federal-provincial memorandum and regulations that seeks to streamline project approvals.
