Gros Cacouna LNG Proposal Receives Approval

Transport Canada announced yesterday that the Canadian government approved the report prepared by the Environmental Assessment Joint Review Panel for TransCanada Corp. and Petro-Canada’s  proposed LNG Terminal at Gros Cacouna, Quebec, thereby authorizing federal agencies to permit the proposal according to the Panel’s mitigation plan. The Globe and Mail reports that the Quebec government has also approved the project. A Petro-Canada spokesperson said that the next step will be to seek regulatory approval for a pipeline to link the LNG terminal with the Eastern Canada gas distribution network. Platts LNG Daily [subscription required] provides additional details.
