Thank you for submitting your question.
We are very happy to have received environmental approval from the federal government. The approval marks the conclusion of more than two and a half years of intensive work done by the Woodfibre LNG team and our engineering, environmental, and shipping consultants.
The federal decision concludes the project’s environmental assessment review process. Prior to the Federal government decision, the project received approvals from separate Squamish Nation and Province of British Columbia environmental review processes.
The next steps are to obtain all outstanding operating permits, and ensure that the conditions from the three environmental reviews are incorporated in the detailed design work and planning for construction and operation of the project.
Woodfibre LNG Limited is working towards a Final Investment Decision in 2016, with a construction period beginning shortly after, followed by commissioning and regular operation.
