Pacific NorthWest LNG Project Cancelled

By CT2 Staff26 July 2017

Petronas and its partners have announced the cancellation of the Pacific NorthWest LNG liquefaction (PNW LNG) project in British Columbia.

The US$27 billion, three-train liquefaction plant was to be built on Lelu Island, near Prince Rupert. While there were environmental concerns over the project, the company cited economic challenges facing the LNG market as drivers for the decision.

“We are disappointed that the extremely challenging environment brought about by the prolonged depressed prices and shifts in the energy industry have led us to this decision,” Anuar Taib, Chairman of the PNW LNG Board, said. “PETRONAS and its North Montney Joint Venture partners remain committed to developing their significant natural gas assets in Canada and will continue to explore all options as part of its long-term investment strategy moving forward.”
