The Woodfibre LNG Project will be located on an existing industrial site, the former Woodfibre pulp mill, which is well suited for conversion to an LNG facility. The site features: An existing FortisBC gas pipeline, an electricity transmission line connected to the BC Hydro transmission grid and an existing deep-water port for receiving and loading ships.

Industrial zoning in the District of Squamish and a designation of employment and industrial use under the District of Squamish’s Official Community Plan (OCP).

Natural gas will be delivered to the Woodfibre site through the existing and expanded FortisBC pipeline, where it would be liquefied and loaded into carriers for shipment. It is currently anticipated that the project could export approximately two million tones of LNG per year, which is about one-tenth of the anticipated volume of some of the large LNG projects proposed for northern BC.
