CEAA reportedly requests more information regarding Petronas Environmental Assessment

PacificNorthwest LNG will apparently have to do a bit more research when it comes to their bid for environmental approval for their Lelu Island Terminal Proposal.

According to an item posted today from the Bloomberg News Group, the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency has asked Petronas/Pacific Northwest LNG to provide further details regarding questions about the impact of the proposed project on marine resources, air quality and how it may affect aboriginal groups in the region.

The request was reportedly made by way of a correspondence to the company on May 9th.

The time that is required by PacificNorthwest to compile the additional information will not be held against their 365 day time limit for the assessment.

However, the need for more information by the CEAA could mean a delay when it comes to any final approval decision from the Federal Regulator.
