From the proponent's project description:
BG Group is proposing a liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility on Ridley Island near Prince Rupert, British Columbia. The state-of-the-art LNG facility will liquefy natural gas and transfer it to ships for transport to market. The LNG facility will be supplied by natural gas produced in north-east BC, and the gas will be connected to the coast via an underground and underwater natural gas pipeline.
The plan proposes building an initial facility that includes two LNG processing units (known as trains), two LNG storage tanks and an LNG shipping terminal. Each LNG train would have 7 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of capacity for a facility total of 14 mtpa.
The site, which is within the Tsimshian traditional territory and under the jurisdiction of the Prince Rupert Port Authority, benefits from its coastal location and proximity to Asia-Pacific markets. Other advantages of the industrially zoned site include road and rail access and a deep-water port.
