Aurora LNG, one of British Columbia's natural gas export proposals, will move forward with site evaluation work for a potential LNG project at Digby Island.
At Aurora LNG's request, B.C. has agreed to transfer the sole proponent agreement (SPA) from the northern portion of Grassy Point to Digby Island, which the company has identified as more suitable site for an export facility.
Under the pre-existing SPA with Aurora LNG, the Province has collected two non-refundable payments totalling CAN$ 18 million.
Aurora LNG is joint venture between Nexen Energy ULC (a CNOOC Limited company), INPEX Corporation and JGC Exploration Canada Ltd.
