The long-awaited announcement of Canada’s decision on the fate of the Pacific NorthWest LNG project finally came and it was great news.

As well, AltaGas is continuing to edge closer.

They announced a positive final investment decision on their North Pine propane project that will feed the proposed export terminal on Ridley Island last week.

“As we move into the last couple months of the year we expect to hit our financial targets and bring our Ridley Island Propane Export Terminal investment decision to fruition,” David Harris, president and CEO of AltaGas, said.

Just more good news for Prince Rupert, Northwest B.C., and for that matter, the rest of Canada.
