Environmental process launched for Cedar LNG

Haisla Nation-owned development to get British Columbia environmental assessment

British Columbia regulators have kicked off the process of developing an environmental assessment for the planned Cedar liquefied natural gas export facility.

The proposed project, which would have the capacity to export up to 4 million tonnes of LNG per year, constitutes a "reviewable project" requiring an environmental assessment, according to a 30 August letter from the western Canadian province's Environmental Assessment Office.

Cedar LNG is being developed by the Haisla Nation on its lands near Kitimat, where the Shell-led LNG Canada project is being built.

The area is also home to the Woodfibre LNG project, which is expected to take a final investment decision soon, and Chevron's proposed Kitimat LNG.

The facility received a licence in 2016 from the Canadian federal government allowing it to export up to 8.55 billion cubic metres per year.
