Groups receive $241,000 to participate in Prince Rupert LNG environmental assessment

The T. Buck Suzuki Environmental Foundation, Prince Rupert Environmental Society, United Fishermen and Allied Workers’ Union each also received $10,500, while the Skeena Wild Conservation Trust is getting $9,700.

The funding can now be used to take part in the upcoming steps of the environmental assessment, like reviewing and commenting on the Environmental Impact Statement and the draft Environmental Assessment Report.

The project includes a liquefied natural gas facility on Prince Rupert’s Ridley Island 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. 

Spectra Energy has been selected to build the accompanying 850 kilometre pipeline from near Fort St. John.
