Public Notice
Pacific NorthWest LNG Project — Public Comments Invited

February 10, 2016 — The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (the Agency) is conducting a federal environmental assessment of the proposed Pacific NorthWest LNG Project, located in British Columbia.

The Agency invites the public to comment on the draft Environmental Assessment Report, a document that includes the Agency's conclusions and recommendations regarding the potential environmental effects of the project, the proposed mitigation measures, the significance of adverse environmental effects, and the follow-up program.

In keeping with the recently announced interim approach and principles for environmental assessments, information on anticipated direct and upstream greenhouse gas emissions linked to the project is included in the draft Report.

The Agency also invites the public to comment on the potential environmental assessment conditions for the project. These potential conditions would become legally binding on the proponent if the Minister of Environment and Climate Change ultimately issues a decision statement indicating the project may proceed.

All comments received will be considered public and will be posted to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Registry website.

Written comments must be submitted by March 11, 2016 to:

The Proposed Project

Pacific NorthWest LNG Ltd. is proposing to construct and operate a liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility and marine terminal near Prince Rupert, within the District of Port Edward. The Pacific NorthWest LNG facility would be located on Lelu Island. The proposed project would convert natural gas to LNG for export to Pacific Rim markets in Asia.
