Shell, partners detail LNG export project in British Columbia

By OGJ editors

Partners in one of British Columbia’s planned LNG export projects have announced details of the project. Shell, Korea Gas Corp., Mitsubishi Corp., and PetroChina Co. Ltd. said they are developing the proposed LNG export plant near Kitimat, BC.

Shell holds a 40% interest in the LNG Canada project, with Kogas, Mitsubishi, and PetroChina each holding 20%. The proposed project includes design, construction, and operation of a natural gas liquefaction plant, storage, and export of LNG, including marine off-loading and shipping.

LNG Canada will initially have two LNG processing trains, each with capacity to produce 6 million tonnes/year, with an option to expand.

The announcement said the partners will decide whether to move ahead with the project’s development after conducting engineering work and environmental assessments, as well as consultations with local communities and other stakeholders.

Start-up could come around the end of the decade, assuming all necessary regulatory approvals and investment decisions.
