Woodfibre LNG receives BC OGC facility permit

Published by
LNG Industry,


The Woodfibre LNG project has received its facility permit from the British Columbia Oil and Gas Commission (BC OGC).

Woodfibre’s President, David Keane, made the following statement upon receipt of the permit:

“Following a rigorous process, Woodfibre LNG is pleased to have received our facility permit issued from the [BC OGC], one of the key permits required for construction and operation of the project.

“This is a positive step forward as we work to build the cleanest LNG export facility in the world.

“This permit specifies requirements the project must comply with for design, construction and operation of the Woodfibre LNG Project, with a focus on public and environmental safety.

“Previous to this permit, Woodfibre LNG is proud to have received three major environmental assessment approvals. Our environmental assessment process with the Squamish Nation is the first of its kind in Canada. The progress we have made would not be possible without the contributions and feedback made by our First Nation partners and the Squamish community.

“We are dedicated to bringing benefits to British Columbia through jobs and economic development, and ultimately a project that will have significant positive impact on global climate and human health.

“As we move towards construction, we will strive to exceed the high standards of public and environmental safety that are expected of us by the Canadian, B.C., and Squamish Nation governments, and the Squamish community.

“This permit is a large piece of our puzzle, and with it in place, we are working towards a final decision to proceed with this project this summer.”
