Two Canadian LNG proposals get export nod

Canada’s National Energy Board has approved exports of LNG from two projects under consideration for the Atlantic Coast.

In the latest action, it granted Saint John LNG Development Co. a 25-year license to export as much as 8.12 billion cu m/year from a liquefaction plant at Saint John, NB.

Saint John LNG is an indirectly owned subsidiary of Repsol SA, a partner with Irving Oil in the existing Canaport LNG import terminal, where liquefaction facilities would be built.

The NEB stipulated that the license will expire 10 years from approval by the Governor in Council if exports haven’t begun.

In August, the board approved a 25-year license for export of as much as 19.4 billion cu m/year of LNG from the Bear Head LNG project proposed to be built near Point Tupper, NS (OGJ Online, Mar. 3, 2015).

The license carries a 10-year start-up stipulation.

Bear Head is a wholly owned subsidiary of Liquefied Natural Gas Ltd., Perth.
