The Canadian company, which is part of the Pacific Oil & Gas Group, is proposing the construction a liquefied natural gas processing and export facility located at the waterfront industrial site of Western Forest Products’ former pulp mill near Squamish. It would have a capacity of approximately 2.1 million tonnes per year. 

The application has been welcomed by Premier Christy Clark, who says it’s a sign the province’s LNG industry is gaining speed. 

“Seeing another LNG export licence filed with the federal government shows two things,” said Premier Christy Clark. “It further indicates that our LNG has huge promise to deliver the jobs and prosperity that B.C. so richly deserves, but also that it’s right around the corner. If they want to be part of this opportunity, it’s urgent that companies are in the game now.”
