ORCA LNG receives NEB export approval for planned Prince Rupert LNG Terminal

ORCA LNG has yet to
announce where in the
Prince Rupert area that their
proposed shipment terminal
will be located
A first step for one of the proposed LNG terminals on the North Coast gained some momentum on Monday, with the approval of the National Energy Board for export shipments for a proposed LNG shipment facility to be operated by a company known as Orca LNG.

We last heard of their interest in the region back in September of 2014, when Orca LNG first submitted their application with the NEB, which at that point had not identified where exactly they planned on building their liquefaction storage tanks and terminal facility.

To this point, the company still has yet to develop any form of presence in the community or through any kind of website update.

The approval from the NEB provides for a 25 year licence to start on the date of the first export, with an early expiration clause in effect should exports not take place within ten years of yesterdays approval notice.

The approval notice however is just the start down the road to a potential export terminal for the region, to provide readers with some sense of the time lines in place.

The Pacific NorthWest LNG project, which at the moment is the one on the North Coast that has the most momentum, received its NEB approval back on March 31st of 2014, that after starting their application process on July 5th of 2013

You can review the ORCA LNG Decision from the National Energy Board from their website.

What few items of note that we have found regarding Orca can be found on our archive page, see the 2014 archive.
