From the proponent's project description:

Pacific NorthWest LNG Limited Partnership (PNW LNG) is proposing to construct and operate a
liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility within the District of Port Edward, British Columbia (the proposed
Project). The proposed Project would be located on Lelu Island within the lands and waters under
the jurisdiction of the Prince Rupert Port Authority (PRPA). The proposed Project would convert
natural gas from northeast BC into LNG for export to Pacific Rim markets in Asia. PNW LNG is a
subsidiary of PETROLIAM NASIONAL BERHAD (PETRONAS). PNW LNG would build the Project
and manage the day to day operations of the LNG facility and marine terminal.

At full build-out the facility would receive approximately 3.2 billion standard cubic feet per day (Bcfd),
or 9.1 x 10
7 cubic metres (m3) per day, of pipeline grade natural gas, and produce up to 19.2 million
tonnes per annum (MTPA) of LNG. The natural gas would be transported to the proposed Project via
a new pipeline from northeast BC. The pipeline is a separate project that would be constructed,
owned and operated by a third party (Prince Rupert Gas Transmission a subsidiary of TransCanada
Pipelines Ltd.) and assessed independently under the applicable regulatory regime.

Key components of the proposed Project are described in Section 2.2 and include: a natural gas
reception system, gas pretreatment, three 6.4 MTPA natural gas liquefaction trains, three full
containment 180,000 m
3 (or up to two 225,000 m3) LNG storage tanks, a marine terminal and berths
with a trestle, trestle control room, two LNG carrier berths, shipping LNG (between the terminal and
Triple Island pilotage station), a materials off-loading facility (MOF), an access road, pioneer dock,
bridge, and pipeline and utility connections (e.g., water and sewer).

Natural gas is the primary option proposed to power the liquefaction process and ancillary
components of the proposed Project. It is anticipated that the proposed Project would be constructed
in two phases with the first phase having a design capacity of 12.8 MTPA of LNG with an additional
6.4 MTPA of capacity to be developed after the first two trains are operational. The EIS/Application
will include both phases. Provided all necessary federal, provincial and local authorizations are
obtained, the proposed Project is expected to be operational by late 2018.
