The Woodfibre LNG Project has been given its environmental assessment certificate by the Environment Minister, and the Natural Gas Development Minister. The project has a price tag of $1.4-$1.8 billion, and will have a facility with liquefied natural gas storage, a marine terminal, and LNG shipping by carriers.
The project is the second to have been granted a certificate after a substituted environmental assessment. Substituted refers to the Environmental Assessment Office conducting a single process that meets federal and provincial requirements.
It’s estimated the project will produce 2.415 million tonnes of LNG per year. It’s also estimated that 100 full time positions will be created during operations.
There are 25 conditions that the Province provided that are a part of the certificate. A list of those conditions can be seen by clicking here.
