$40B LNG project approval for Northern BC

Primary investors of LNG Canada have given the go-ahead for a new massive liquified natural gas project in Northern BC. The $40 billion project calls for a new pipeline from Daswon Creek to a future processing plant on the Kitimat coast. The B.C. ministries of Finance and Energy have estimated the project would generate $22 billion in direct government revenue over the next 40 years.

“British Columbians want a future that brings opportunities for them and their kids in the communities they call home, while living up to our responsibilities to guarantee clean air, land and water for the generations that follow,” Premier Horgan said in a press release.
