From the proponent's project description:

Quicksilver Resources Canada Inc. (Quicksilver), an oil and gas exploration company based out of Calgary, Alberta, is  investigating options to build and operate natural gas liquefaction, storage and on-loading facilities, called Discovery LNG, on the north side of Campbell River, British Columbia (B.C.), Canada. The potential Project will undergo a feasibility study and once complete, and upon regulatory approval, Quicksilver would construct a facility that would convert produced natural gas primarily from British Columbia into LNG for export to Pacific Rim markets in Asia. Discovery LNG is expected to provide the facilities for liquefying natural gas, LNG storage and carrier on-loading facilities and would be operated by a downstream partnership between Quicksilver and a third party (to be finalized).

Discovery LNG would provide a brand new page in the history of the Campbell River project site, formerly occupied by Catalyst Paper. The potential multi-billion dollar project would be an important contributor to the local economy and would be built on an industrial site, previously used by the Elk Falls Mill, which would  be remediated over the life of the project.

Discovery LNG would be designed, built and operated with responsibility and safety as primary concerns. Natural gas itself is very safe and is not flammable or explosive in its liquid state.  It is also the lowest greenhouse gas emitting fossil fuel.
