The facility, planned for Ridley Island in Prince Rupert, is currently under the review of the Canadian Environmental Agency, which is deciding whether the project requires a federal environmental assessment.

The Prince Rupert LNG Project includes building an LNG natural gas liquefaction plant as well as a port to export the LNG internationally. It would be developed in two phases, with a capacity of up to 21 million tonnes a year when all three trains are operational.

The Sun reports that all three trains would consume approximately 3.3 billion cubic feet of gas a day, which is the equivalent of the province’s current natural gas production. The plant would require 800 megawatts of energy a day, compared to Site C’s potential 900 megawatts. BG says it will burn natural gas to produce that energy.
