Environmental Assessment for Prince Rupert LNG project begins

The project includes a liquefied natural gas facility on Prince Rupert’s Ridley Island as well as a port to export the LNG internationally. It would be developed in two phases, with a capacity of up to 21 million tonnes a year when all three trains are operational. 

The project has been proposed by BG Group Canada, with Spectra Energy selected to build the accompanying 850 kilometre pipeline from near Fort St. John. 

The public can now review and comment on the draft Environmental Impact Statement Guidelines, which identifies the potential environmental effects that will be considered and what information and analysis must be included in the final EIS.

Written comments must be submitted by July 21, 2013 to:
