The Canadian National Energy Board (NEB) has approved WesPac Midstream’s application for a 25-year natural gas export licence.
The licence has a maximum term quantity of 116.44 billion m3, and has been issued subject to the approval of the Governor in Council.
When evaluating natural gas and LNG export licence applications, the NEB considers if the quantity of gas proposed to be exported is surplus to Canadian requirements.
As such, the NEB has determined that the quantity of gas proposed for export by WesPac is surplus to Canadian needs.
The approved export points are the outlet of the loading arm at the WesPac LNG Marine Terminal in Delta, British Columbia (B.C.); the marine cargo terminals in Vancouver, B.C.; and the highway border crossings along the international boundary between B.C. and the US.
