Another company planning to export liquefied natural gas is turning its attention to the North Coast

Orca LNG submitted its application to the National Energy Board for a licence to export 24 million metric tonnes per annum (mtpa) of LNG for 25 years from a yet-to-be-determined location “in the vicinity of Prince Rupert”.

“The project is planned to consist of six floating liquefaction storage and offloading (FLNG) vessels, permanently moored near-shore as they become available and are placed into operation,” reads the company’s filing.

“Each FLNG vessel is expected to have liquefaction capabilities, LNG storage capacity of 250,000 cubic meters, and be able to deliver LNG to off-taking LNG carriers by utilizing a ship-to-ship process. Each vessel will be able to liquefy approximately 4-5 mtpa of LNG.”

Orca LNG is expecting to commence exports in 2019 with one vessel. The number of ships would calling on the terminal would increase as construction of additional FLNG vessels is completed.

The gas itself would be coming from the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin. Although Orca LNG is in discussion with “several pipeline companies” about using either existing infrastructure of the construction of a dedicated pipeline.
