Woodfibre LNG is one step closer to building a LNG facility in Squamish.
The proposed facility would cost close to 2 billion dollars to build, and would include a storage container and marine terminal. Over 2.4 million tonnes of LNG would be produced there per year.
Environment Minister Mary Polak says today they decided to grant Woodfibre LNG an environmental assessment certificate.
“The plant can go ahead as long as they abide by the 25 legally binding conditions that are a part of that enviromental assessment certificate.”
Minister Polak says this facility will offer jobs to the Squamish First Nation community, who were consulted in the process.
