Pacific Northwest LNG could have significant impact; CEAA

OTTAWA, O.N. – The Pacific Northwest LNG Project could have significant environmental impact.  In a report released Friday by Reuters, two sources say the report from the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency will suggest the project needs significant remedial work to counter the environmental impact.

The Federal Government has until October 2, 2016 to make a decision on the LNG project that would see Petronas build a pipeline from Northeast B.C. and a LNG facility on the west coast of B.C.

According to Reuters, Environment Minister Catherine McKenna will now present the report from the CEAA to the Federal Cabinet with her recommendation if the project should move forward.

If the project is approved by Cabinet, Petronas has said they will need time to review any conditions before making a final investment decision.
