Province to aid study aimed at assessing effects of LNG in Kitimat

Some of the projects in the area that create or could create emissions are three proposed LNG terminals, an existing aluminium smelter, a proposed oil refinery, gas turbine powered electrical generation facilities and a crude oil export facility. Specifically, the study will focus on sulphur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide emissions.

In a release, Rich Coleman, Minister of Natural Gas Development, says “British Columbia is an environmental leader and we are taking the steps necessary to keep that title. This study will ensure our airshed plan for Kitimat is comprehensive, so the quality of life in the area is upheld while jobs and economic prospects increase as a result of LNG and industrial development.”

The study will examine the effect of emissions on water and soil, vegetation, and human health from direct exposure. A Request for Proposals to conduct the study will be issued for the work and the successful proponent will be required to complete the study and submit a final report to the B.C. Government by March 31 of next year.
