LNG export applications continue to gain momentum  
VICTORIA - Another liquefied natural gas (LNG) export application has 
been filed by Woodfibre Natural Gas Limited today with the National 
Energy Board (NEB) for the Woodfibre LNG Project. This is a further sign 
that B.C.'s LNG industry continues to gain speed.  
"Seeing another LNG export licence filed with the federal government 
shows two things," said Premier Christy Clark. "It further indicates that 
our LNG has huge promise to deliver the jobs and prosperity that B.C. so 
richly deserves, but also that it's right around the corner. If they want 
to be part of this opportunity, it's urgent that companies are in the 
game now."  
"Companies who want to capitalize on the emerging LNG industry are moving 
very quickly to develop their projects in British Columbia," said Rich 
Coleman, Minister of Natural Gas Development. "We're confident an LNG 
industry will create thousands of jobs and provide lasting legacies that 
will deliver a wide range of benefits for our communities."  
Woodfibre Natural Gas Limited is proposing to construct a liquefied 
natural gas processing and export facility project with a proposed 
capacity of approximately 2.1 million tonnes per year. If approved, it 
will be located at the waterfront industrial site of Western Forest 
Product's former pulp mill near Squamish.  
"Woodfibre Natural Gas Limited is continuing to pursue early feasibility 
work on our project and this application is an important step. We look 
forward to moving forward through additional regulatory processes and 
furthering our work with the community, First Nations and the public in 
the many months ahead," said company president Ratnesh Bedi.  
In reviewing each export application, the NEB ensures that quantity of 
the gas does not exceed the amount required to meet domestic demand. If 
the NEB grants permission for this export licence, the total number of 
licences awarded would rise to seven.
