BG Group Prince Rupert LNG
June 19, 2013 – BG Group applied to the National Energy Board (NEB) for a license to export up to 21 million tonnes of LNG per year beginning in 2021
About This Project
The BG Group has engaged with the Prince Rupert Port Authority to secure an approximately 125 hectare site on Ridley Island in Prince Rupert for a proposed LNG facility that would be used to liquefy and export Western Canadian natural gas to international markets.
When fully developed, the LNG facility will include three LNG processing trains with a total capacity of up to 21 million tonnes per annum (mtpa), approximately 7 mtpa each. The facility will be developed in 2 phases: Phase 1 will include two LNG processing units and Phase 2 will include the addition of the third LNG processing unit to achieve full processing capacity. LNG from the liquefaction process will be held in one to three LNG storage tanks, each with a capacity of up to 180,000 cubic meters. The marine terminal will initially include one trestle and one ship-loading berth. When train 3 is constructed, a trestle extension and second berth will be added.
BG Group has signed a Project Development Agreement with Spectra Energy to jointly develop plans for a new natural gas transportation system from Northeast B.C. to the proposed Prince Rupert LNG terminal on Ridley Island.
