Woodfibre LNG, a liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility planned for Howe Sound on the southern B.C. coast,  has received its facility permit from the British Columbia (BC) Oil and Gas Commission (OGC).

“Following a rigorous process, Woodfibre LNG has received our Facility Permit issued from the BC OGC, one of the key permits required for construction and operation of the project. This is a positive step forward as we work to build the cleanest LNG export facility in the world," said Woodfibre LNG president David Keane.

“This permit specifies requirements the project must comply with for design, construction and operation of the Woodfibre LNG Project, with a focus on public and environmental safet," he added.

The permit contains 35 conditions for Woodfibre to meet, in addition to standard regulatory requirements.

“As we move towards construction, we will strive to exceed the high standards of public and environmental safety that are expected of us by the Canadian, B.C., and Squamish Nation governments, and the Squamish community. This permit is a large piece of our puzzle, and with it in place, we are working towards a final decision to proceed with this project this summer,” Keane said.
