Progress for the Community. Progress for the Climate.

LNG is Canada’s opportunity to provide clean natural gas to growing markets in Asia. Once operational, Woodfibre LNG will be the cleanest LNG facility in the world, providing over 100 full-time jobs for the lifetime of the project. We are working to create prosperity here at home while reducing climate change and air pollution globally.

Our Environmental Impact

Woodfibre LNG will be powered by renewable hydroelectricity, making it the cleanest LNG facility in the world. Canadian LNG exported to Asia will offset coal as an energy source and help reduce emissions by more than 45%.

Safety is a Priority at Woodfibre

LNG has been safely shipped around the world for over 60 years without a single loss of containment. As a small scale LNG project, Woodfibre LNG anticipates there will be one LNG carrier calling at the terminal every 10 days (approximately 2-3 per month).

Careers with Woodfibre

The Woodfibre LNG project is expected to create up to 650 construction jobs, with hiring preference given to qualified Squamish Nation members, Squamish residents, British Columbians and Canadians – in that order.

Switching from coal-fired electricity to Woodfibre LNG saves emissions equal to:

76
Years of Squamish emissions

300k
Trips from Vancouver to Toronto (passenger vehicle)

700k
Passenger vehicles taken off the road each year

45%
Reduction in emissions when natural gas replaces coal
