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 October 2018, Shell announced that a final investment decision had been reached.

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.

Coastal GasLink Pipeline Project

TransCanada Corp.

The proposed pipeline would run 650 kilometers from northeastern BC and deliver gas to Shell's LNG Canada Gas facility near Kitimat, and possibly to the Cedar LNG Export proposal. The pipeline proposes to transport between 1.7-3.2 billion cubic feet per day. Residents have raised concerns about compressor stations that would be installed along the route, sometimes only 25 kilometers from their communities or properties. Compressor stations are a concern to nearby residents due to the potential for air and noise pollution.

Coastal Gaslink received Environmental Assessment approval in October, 2014.
