This holiday season, all of our Supporters are entered to win an $800 Shopping Spree Giveaway!

VANCOUVER, B.C. – The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency has begun the final 90-day environmental review of the Petronas-backed Pacific NorthWest LNG project.

According to a report by Reuters, Petronas and its partners in the project have been waiting nearly three years for a permit to build the LNG export terminal on Lelu Island near Prince Rupert. The review process was paused in March when the regulator requested more information from the company.

The CEAA posted the company’s response online on Monday, saying it “satisfies the information request.” The agency now has three months to complete its review.

The federal government has also said that they will announce their final decision on the project by the end of September.

The project has long been considered the odds-on favourite to be Canada’s first LNG export terminal.
