Eighteen liquefied natural gas proposals have been put forward in northern BC to date, making the scale of proposed development unprecedented. Some of these proposed projects are simply speculative, but others have cleared environmental assessments and obtained export licenses.
Each of the proposals is operating independently from one another, meaning they each have separate environmental assessment deadlines, open houses, site locations and pipeline routes. This makes it very challenging for local residents to keep track and meaningfully engage with each proposal.
