Orca LNG, which is proposing to construct a terminal composed of six floating LNG (FLNG) vessels permanently moored to the shore “in the vicinity of Prince Rupert”, was approved for a 25-year export licence on July 27. The licence includes a maximum annual export of 28.06 billion cubic metres of natural gas, or 1.344 billion cubic feet.
