PNW LNG is committed to responsibly construction and operating a world-class LNG facility. Their environmental protection plan and procedures would ensure the project is constructed and operated safely and responsibly.

Some of the procedures PNW LNG would implement during construction include:

  • Independent environmental monitors
  • Qualified marine mammal observers for in-water construction
  • Monitoring Flora Bank for possible changes with local First Nations
  • Monitoring the extent and density of eelgrass beds
  • Ongoing fish and marine mammal monitoring program with local First Nations
  • Adapting construction timing windows and mitigation based on fish and wildlife migration patterns

Pacific NorthWest LNG is a proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility on Lelu Island. The facility would export natural gas produced in northeast B.C.

Benefits of the project include:

  • Up to 330 direct operational long-term jobs
  • Approximately 300 local spin-off jobs
  • Up to 4,500 jobs during peak construction
  • Contribute up to $1.3 billion annually to federal, provincial and municipal governments in various taxes and royalties


PNW LNG has completed the most comprehensive study of the marine environment around Lelu Island to date. The result of the study found that fish and fish habitat would remain healthy and Flora Bank would remain stable. The study included:

  • 100,000+ hours of scientific engineering studies
  • 1,000+ days of research on and around Lelu Island
  • 365+ days of detailed fish surveys
  • Comprehensive 3D modelling of weather and sea conditions on Flora Bank

What it can mean for British Columbians

It starts with investment

Decisions to invest private capital are where economic growth and prosperity begin, and an LNG industry in BC would be built on potentially massive investment.

Employment: Who benefits?

These are just some among the many direct skill requirements during the construction and operations phases of an LNG project; as well as some of the resulting spin-off opportunities, which would be widely dispersed around the province. (Source: Proponent materials and government assessments)

Getting better value for our resources

With no LNG export capacity now, we sell all our natural gas to the United States. And since it has its own growing reserves, the price is low. Better market access could significantly increase the return British Columbians and Canadians get from their resource. Natural gas is BC’s only resource export sold to a single market.

An exceptional shipping safety record

Specially designed LNG cargo ships have covered more than 240 million km on global shipping routes over the past 50 years, with one of the best safety records of any industry. So we can be confident the exceptional benefits of an LNG industry won’t come at the cost of maritime risk.
