CEAA makes twin announcements for North Coast LNG projects

The media release office of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency was busy this week, with a pair of announcements regarding two LNG proposals for the North Coast.

The first deals with the Pacific NorthWest LNG Project, with the announcement that the deadline for Public Comments has been extended  to September 20, 2013.

As well as that extension of deadline the CEAA also revealed that the Agency is making funding available to support the participation of the public and of Aboriginal groups in the Federal Environmental Assessment of the Pacific Northwest LNG Project.  The deadline to submit an application for funding has also been extended to September 20, 2013.  Those individuals and groups how have already submitted an application do not need to re apply.
