Woodfibre LNG Limited announced today that the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office (EAO) has issued an Environmental Assessment Certificate (EAC) for its proposed Woodfibre LNG project.
“Receiving environmental approval in British Columbia is not only an important milestone for the Woodfibre LNG project, but it means the people of Squamish and the region are one step closer to realizing the opportunities that an industrial project like Woodfibre LNG can bring,” said Byng Giraud, Vice President, Corporate Affairs, Woodfibre LNG Limited.
Woodfibre LNG project is undergoing a substituted environmental assessment process, whereby the BC EAO coordinates the review process on behalf of both the EAO and the Canadian Environment Assessment Agency (CEAA).
The project must meet all provincial and federal requirements, including EAO conditions, to responsibly manage potential effects associated with the proposed project, the company said. A federal government decision on the project is expected later this year.
