Thanks for the question.
Just to clarify, our project has nothing to do with crude oil, but instead involves natural gas. We will take that gas from the FortisBC pipeline, meaning it is the exact same product that people use in their homes to run their gas furnaces and fuel their gas fireplaces and gas stoves.
Our proposed project will cool this gas until it becomes a liquid. And once in liquid form, the LNG can safely be put onto a ship and exported to overseas markets.
The following infographic helps to explain all of the steps:
If you’d like more information about LNG in general, the BC LNG Alliance has a great fact sheet, which you can find here.
We hope this answers your question. If not, feel free to ask a follow-up and we would be happy to respond.
