150,000 tonnes per annum – approximately one percent the size of a large-scale LNG project
37-acre site approximately five kilometres east of Port Edward adjacent to existing industrial facilities including BC Hydro operations and a natural gas pipeline.
PELNG would be built on the traditional territories of the Tsimshian communities. We are committed to meaningful engagement with First Nations on whose traditional territory we will operate.
Connection to the existing Pacific Northern Gas natural gas pipeline
Clean, renewable BC Hydro electricity
Existing container port with no increase in marine traffic
Standardized small-scale LNG facility
Export: Asian markets to displace coal and diesel
Domestic: Northern communities in Canada to displace diesel
Project overview: Many Asian countries are switching from carbon intensive fuels, such as coal or diesel, to cleaner natural gas. Using LNG from British Columbia can result in substantial global GHG reductions while significantly improving air quality.
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.
