If approved, Woodfibre will be powered by electricity from BC Hydro, significantly reducing potential emissions and making ours one of the cleanest LNG facilities in the world.
But you are right, there will still be emissions coming from our project. The majority of those emissions 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 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.
In addition, the air dispersion modelling we did as part of our Environmental Assessment Certificate Application showed that all predicted concentrations were below the air quality criteria.
