If the Woodfibre LNG Project goes ahead, LNG carriers – three to four per month, accompanied by at least three tugboats and piloted by two BC Coast Pilots – will transit Howe Sound on the existing shipping route through Queen Charlotte Channel east of Bowen Island. The carriers will then pass Gambier Island and Anvil Island as they travel to the Woodfibre LNG terminal. They will take the same route out of Howe Sound and back into international shipping lanes.
You can see the shipping route in this illustration: https://askwoodfibrelng.ca/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/Figure-for-Public-Open-Houses.jpg
