Pacific NorthWest LNG files environmental impact statement

Pacific NorthWest LNG has taken the next step in making its Lelu Island terminal a reality, filing the environmental impact statement.

Pacific NorthWest LNG has taken the next step in making its Lelu Island terminal a reality, filing the environmental impact statement with the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency and B.C. Assessment Office on Feb. 28.

“The filing of our Environmental Impact Statement to both federal and provincial regulatory agencies is a significant milestone in the life of this project,” said Greg Kist, president of Pacific NorthWest LNG.

“This marks a renewed round of consultation and feedback from all interested parties on our proposal and I encourage participation in this rigorous environmental review.”

Once accepted, the environmental impact statement will be reviewed internally by regulatory agencies and First Nations prior to a public comment period commencing in Spring 2014. The public comment period will consist of open houses, working group meetings and opportunities for direct comment from the public on the Environmental Impact Statement.

“We want to build the best facility possible, and that means hearing from residents on what their vision is for Pacific NorthWest LNG,” Kist said.

“Pacific NorthWest LNG intends to be a positive contributor to the local economy and a provider of long-term careers for decades to come.”
