AltaGas DCLNG General Partner, Inc. has filed an application with the Canadian National Energy Board (NEB) to export LNG from British Columbia (B.C.).
The permit will allow the export of approximately 365 billion ft3/yr over a 25-year period from a proposed floating LNG (FLNG) terminal near Kitimat, B.C.
According to the filing, the LNG project will be developed in two phases. The first phase will consist of floating liquefaction facilities with the capacity to receive 110 million ft3/d of gas. The second phase will consist of floating liquefaction facilities that will increase the gas export capacity of the project up to 1 billion ft3/d.
The intent is to make a final investment decision (FID) with respect to the first phase of the project by the end of 2015, and to commence first deliveries of LNG in 2018.
The feed gas for the project will be supplied from the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin and will be secured through a mixture of gas purchase contracts and supply through transactions made at market hubs.
