Woodfibre LNG has finally received its facility permit from the British Columbia (BC) Oil and Gas Commission (OGC). The new LNG export facility planned for Howe Sound must comply the 35 conditions contained in the permit. The conditions exceed the regulatory requirements to address public, environmental and safety concerns. The conditions specify requirements for design, construction and operations, and include a tsunami hazard study, a flaring notification plan and reports on all emissions. Woodfibre LNG President, David Keane has indicated that a final decision to proceed with this project is expected this summer.
