Thanks for your question.
If approved, Woodfibre LNG will be powered by electricity from BC Hydro, making ours one of the cleanest LNG facilities in the world.
Though that will reduce our potential Greenhouse Gas emissions by 80 per cent, there will still be emissions coming from our project. The majority of those will come from elements that we will remove from the natural gas prior to liquefaction, and then incinerate.
In its environmental regulations, the provincial government has set out standards that all LNG facilities must meet, and we are proud to say our plant will always do better. At peak capacity, our project will have a greenhouse gas intensity of 0.059 t CO2e per tonne LNG; in the Greenhouse Gas Industrial Reporting and Control Act, government has set a threshold of 0.16 t CO2e per tonne LNG.
