Natural gas from the existing Pacific Northern Gas Pipeline will be chilled to approximately -162C and turned into LNG.
LNG will be stored in buffer tanks until it is transferred into intermodal LNG ISO containers.
The loaded ISO containers will be transported from our facility to the Port of Prince Rupert Fairview Container Terminal. Conventional container ships will then transport the containers to overseas markets.
Natural gas is the cleanest burning hydrocarbon. It produces fewer greenhouse gas (GHG) and particulate emissions than coal or diesel.
For more than 50 years, LNG has been successfully used throughout the world.
Many Asian countries are switching from coal to natural gas to reduce air pollution. Using LNG from British Columbia can result in substantial net global GHG reductions while significantly improving air quality.
Liquified natural gas, or LNG, is natural gas that has been cooled to -162C. At this point, it becomes a clear, odourless, non-corrosive and non-toxic liquid. When exposed to the environment, LNG rapidly evaporates, leaving no residue on water or soil.
