Project Description

Kitimat LNG will include natural gas liquefaction, LNG storage and marine on-loading facilities. Natural gas will be delivered via a pipeline lateral of approximately 14 kilometres from the Pacific Trail Pipelines, which will connect to the existing Spectra Energy Westcoast Pipeline system. The proximity of Kitimat LNG to the existing natural gas transmission infrastructure is one of the advantages of this project and ensures supply is readily accessible to the facility.

Quick facts

  • Projected number of shipments: five to seven per month
  • Export capacity: initially 5 mmtpa
  • Provincial and federal environmental approvals received

Project schedule

Kitimat LNG is conducting a front-end engineering and design (FEED) and when concluded, the partners will make a final investment decision on whether to proceed with the project. Main construction is expected to commence following that decision. The FEED study will explore the feasibility and timing of constructing a second LNG train.

Environmental standards

Kitimat LNG is committed to high environmental and safety standards in all of our operations and to maximizing the benefits and minimizing the impact of the project on the environment. Measures to minimize environmental impacts include: 

  • Small facility footprint to minimize land use
  • Use of hydroelectric power to reduce overall emissions
  • No harbor dredging minimizes impact on marine environment
