The BG Group is continuing its work on their proposed Ridley Island terminal in hopes of filing the necessary assessment documentation next year.
“The Prince Rupert LNG plant is in the early stages of design and engineering, with work under way to ensure that the plant is built to strident standards to ensure safe, efficient and reliable operations. Our environmental assessment is well underway,” said BG Group Canada vice-president Madeline Whitaker.
“We are currently finalizing the many baselines reports and technical studies we have carried out in the Prince Rupert area and will be continuing our consultation activities throughout this year and into next, aiming to file in early 2015.”
The company anticipates, once a final investment decision is made, a four-year construction window that would call for 6,00 workers at its peak.
In terms of operations, the BG Group expects LNG shipments begin in 2019 or 2020.
