Canadian regulators extended by three months Petroliam Nasional Bhd.’s application to build a liquefied natural gas terminal on the nation’s Pacific coast so the Malaysian company can provide more information about the project’s environmental impacts.

The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency announced the extension Saturday in a filing after Pacific NorthWest LNG, as the project is known, detailed changes to its construction methods and schedule. Regulators need more information to review and analyze the project, the agency said.
