Tsawwassen First Nation launches plans for LNG export plant in Delta

VANCOUVER - Members of the Tsawwassen First Nation in suburban Vancouver will vote next month on plans for a liquefied natural gas export facility on their lands near Delta.

The First Nation has issued a release saying consultation with its members is under way before a vote on Dec. 16.

The release says the proposed facility would produce three to five million tonnes of LNG annually, with the natural gas supply coming via an extension of an existing pipeline located 10 kilometres away.

The First Nation pledges to uphold the strictest environmental practices from the extraction of LNG to the loading of the liquefied gas onto tankers moored at nearby Roberts Bank, just north of the Tsawwassen ferry terminal.

Five to six tankers per month would be expected at the export facility.

Announcement of the Tsawwassen First Nation's proposed LNG plant comes as Premier Christy Clark tours FortisBC's $400-million Tilbury LNG expansion project in Delta, about 20 kilometres away.
