Thank you for your question.
The Woodfibre LNG site and Howe Sound do in fact meet international standards for LNG terminals. You can see for yourself by reading how our site incorporates the Society of International Gas Tanker & Terminal Operators Ltd’s (SIGTTO) guidance here.
If you haven’t heard of SIGTTO, it is an international, non-profit organization dedicated to protecting and promoting the safe and reliable operation of gas tankers and terminals within a sound environment. The Society has consultative status at the International Maritime Organization (IMO), and represents more than 200 companies that operate more than 95% of the world’s LNG tankers and terminals.
We are also proud to be an associate member of SIGTTO. In fact, they even featured us in a recent newsletter (page 11). Once in regular operations, we’ll become a full member.
