LNG Canada Gas
Shell Canada | Korea Gas Corp. | Mitsubishi Corporation | PetroChina Company Ltd.
This $4 billion partnership has received its export license and a conditional Environmental Assessment certificate from the provincial and federal governments. It proposes to transport up to 24 million tonnes of LNG per annum starting with 14 LNG shipments per month and potentially expanding to one shipment per day. However, in July 2016, Shell announced that a final investment decision on the project was delayed in-definitely. In August 2017, Shell announced that a final investment decision is expected sometime in 2018.
The facility will emit atmospheric emissions, such as sulphur dioxide, mono-nitrogen oxides, greenhouse gases, fugitive hydrocarbons, and particulate matter. Due to the constrained Kitimat/Terrace airshed, this has local residents concerned.The project description outlines that fish and fish habitat in the area may be permanently altered or destructed, and that construction could further impact other marine life, migratory birds, nearby lands, and communities.
