At this early stage in our project, we are conducting our Environmental Assessment and engaging with local Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal communities. We are committed to supporting these communities and helping them prepare for LNG development.
Prince Rupert LNG believes LNG development, done responsibly, can help deliver economic and social prosperity for the people of Northern BC. Learn about our social investment.
• Includes the construction of an LNG plant and associated port facilities.
• Would be developed in two phases and may eventually have a production capacity of up to 21 million tonnes of LNG per year.
• Project site covers approximately 255 acres on the southwestern part of Ridley Island.
• Ridley Island was selected for its deep-water port, safe navigation access, road and rail access, and existing infrastructure.
• Ridley Island is Federal Crown land under administration of the Prince Rupert Port Authority designated for industrial use.
• Marine terminal would include one jetty and two ship-loading berths.
• Marine terminal would be able to accommodate a ship with a transport capacity of up to 210,000 cubic metres of LNG.
• Facility would receive natural gas from northeastern BC transported through a pipeline.
• Pipeline would be built and operated by our pipeline partner, Spectra Energy.
• Once the gas has been liquefied into LNG, it would be exported to international markets.
• Could create as many as 3,000 jobs during construction and 400 – 600 full-time positions during operations, as well as additional spin-off jobs and other economic opportunities.
• We will be looking to fill many of the jobs locally.
