|Woodside's Grassy Point LNG Project|
|= To produce initially 6 - 15 million tpy of LNG by investing C$10 - 15 billion =|
According to the latest "Project Description" submitted by Woodside Energy Holdings (Woodside) to Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (CEAA), Woodside proposes to construct and operate an LNG production and export facility at Grassy Point, British Columbia. As proposed, the project liquefies natural gas delivered by a third party pipeline into LNG for export to global markets. |
The facility is to produce 6 - 15 million tonnes per year in the Phase 1 of the project starting from 2021. The estimated capital cost for the Phase 1 of the project is between C$10 - 15 billion. In the Phase 2, the project's production will be 20 million tpy in total. The capacity of each train for natural gas liquefaction is expected to be between 3.0 - 6.5 million tpy.
Development options under consideration include an onshore LNG facility and a nearshore facility. Depending on the selected LNG processing option, construction of Phase 1 of the Project is expected to take approximately four years. Woodside expects environmental assessment and engineering to be completed by 2017. The operational phase of the proposed LNG facility is foreseen to be at least 25 years.
In order for CEAA to decide whether a federal environmental assessment is required for the project, CEAA has started hearing comments from the public on the project and its potential effects on the environment. The comments must be submitted by November 3, 2014.
In July 2014, an application for LNG exports of up to 20 million tpy for 25 years was filed by Woodside to the National Energy Board (NEB) of Canada.
