WestPac LNG to Delay Filing Its Terminal Application

Citing concerns of local residents regarding the project’s location, WestPac LNG CEO Mark Butler told the Powell River Peak (British Columbia, Canada) that his company “will likely not file until late 2008 at the earliest.” Butler also stated that caps proposed for greenhouse gas emissions may prevent some companies from investing in projects located in British Columbia until the caps are firmly established.

Separately, the Peak also reports that opponents of the WestPac LNG project are planning a rally against the project for November 14.
