PRINCE RUPERT LNG AND WESTCOAST CONNECTOR GAS TRANSMISSION PROJECT



Prince Rupert LNG

BG Group | Spectra Energy

Proposed by Shell, the Prince Rupert LNG facility would be located in Prince Rupert on Ridley Island. The facility would be supplied by the Westcoast Connector Gas Transmission Project with an initial capacity of 14 million tonnes per annum. It would bring at least 150 LNG carriers to the coast per year at start-up, with the potential to nearly double.

In October, 2014 BG Group announced it would be delaying the project, citing 2017 as the year it may go ahead. In April, 2015, Royal Dutch Shell purchased the project from the BG Group and in March, 2017, Shell ended development of the project.

Location: 
Ridley Island, Prince Rupert

Participate:

The proposal is currently in the pre-application phase of the BC Environmental Assessment process. The public comment period on Draft Application Information Requirments closed April, 2014. There will be another opportunity to participate once the project has submitted its Environmental Assessment Application.

Westcoast Connector Gas Transmission Project

Spectra Energy

This pipeline is a 48” diameter, 850-kilometre proposal running from the Cypress area of Northeastern BC to BG Group’s proposed LNG facility on Ridley Island. Its proposed route crosses the Babine and Nass Valleys before taking either one of two marine routes to Prince Rupert - the Nasoga Gulf route or the Kitsault route (see map below).

This proposal could be expanded to two pipelines and expects to provide an estimated 60 permanent jobs. Residents along this pipeline have identified the proposed route as a real concern, citing that it would cross several streams and rivers, including the Skeena, Kispiox, Nass, and Babine. All of these river systems are integral to salmon populations reaching the Skeena watershed. 

Route: 
Cypress to Ridley Island, Prince Rupert

Participate:
EA approval granted by provincial government on November 25, 2014.
