Kwispaa LNG Project

Kwispaa LNG (CF) Limited Partnership is proposing to construct and operate a liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility located at Sarita Bay, about 10 kilometres northeast of Bamfield on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. As proposed, the Kwispaa LNG Project would convert natural gas to LNG for export to global markets and would include jetty-moored floating LNG production units, marine terminals, and onshore components. At full build-out, the facility would produce approximately 24 million tonnes of LNG per year, over a lifespan of at least 25 years.

Latest update

August 29, 2022 – The environmental assessment of the Kwispaa LNG Project has terminated. The proponent has not provided the Impact Assessment Agency of Canada with the required information or studies within the legislated time limit.
