LNG pipeline approved

Pacific NorthWest LNG welcomed a decision by the National Energy Board to recommend approval of the North Montney Mainline project.

Pacific NorthWest LNG welcomed a decision by the National Energy Board last week to recommend approval of the North Montney Mainline project, which would bring natural gas from reserves in Northeastern B.C. to the proposed Prince Rupert Gas Transmission line feeding the Lelu Island terminal.

“This decision is a key component to fulfilling a core requisite that informs our Final Investment Decision,” said CEO Michael Culbert.

“With this decision in hand – and awaiting other regulatory approvals, PETRONAS and our partners will continue to work cautiously toward a FID on the Pacific NorthWest LNG (PNW LNG) project.”
