Thanks for your question.

Woodfibre LNG is a proposed small scale natural gas liquefaction and export facility and is not an oil or gas extraction or production facility.

Just like any other natural gas customer, including those in Squamish, Metro Vancouver, Whistler, the Sunshine Coast and Vancouver Island, Woodfibre LNG will buy its natural gas from third party suppliers. This natural gas will be delivered to the Woodfibre site through an expanded FortisBC pipeline.

We are happy to address the issue of hydraulic fracturing where we can, and we’re also happy to suggest other sources of information. A good starting point on chemical additives used in hydraulic fracturing is the BC Oil and Gas Commission, which regulates the practice. On its website you will find a list of the various additives and their uses.

Other good sources of information include:
