Woodfibre LNG Project

Woodfibre LNG Limited Partnership is proposing to construct and operate a liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility located seven kilometres southwest of Squamish, British Columbia, on the northwestern shoreline of Howe Sound. The proposed project includes the development of a natural gas liquefaction facility and an LNG transfer facility to enable the export of the LNG product to global markets via marine vessels. It is expected to operate for at least 25 years and to produce between 1.5 and 2.1 million tonnes of LNG per year. In June 2017, the National Energy Board issued a 40-year export license for the proposed project, extending the original 25-year license by 15 years.


Please note that the proponent was formerly known as Woodfibre LNG Limited.


Latest update
