According to Reuters, Petronas is still holding discussions with the Canadian authorities on how it can progress with the Pacific NorthWest LNG (PNW LNG) project. Concerns regarding the local salmon habitat have caused severe delays to the project. Recently, the federal environment assessment agency granted a further three months for an impact study to be carried out on the proposed project.
Adnan Zainol Abidin, the Petronas Vice President of Global LNG Project, reportedly said: “We will continue to work constructively with the Canadian government and regulators to see how we can move forward.”
Despite the continual delays and reports of Petronas pulling out of the project, the company confirmed in early March 2016 that it is willing to proceed with all of the necessary reviews and studies to see the project come to fruition.
