The Globe and Mail reported that Pacific NorthWest, the company proposing an LNG facility on Lelu Island, within the District of Port Edward, B.C., has filed its environmental impact statement with regulators in a crucial step toward making a final investment decision on the multibillion-dollar liquefied natural gas project.
If approved, the LNG facility is slated to receive natural gas shipments from the proposed Prince Rupert Gas Transmission Project from a point near the District of Hudson’s Hope, B.C.
Pacific NorthWest, which is led by Malaysia’s state-owned Petronas, said that its filing with the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency and B.C. Environmental Assessment Office is a crucial part of the regulatory process.
“This marks a renewed round of consultation and feedback from all interested parties on our proposal and I encourage participation in this rigorous environmental review.”
