Canadian Government Approves Four Long-Term LNG Export Licenses

Today, the Government of Canada announced its approval of licenses for Pacific NorthWest LNG, Prince Rupert LNG, WCC LNG, and Woodfibre LNG to export LNG on a long-term basis from proposed terminals in British Columbia.  The licenses were initially approved by the Canadian National Energy Board in December 2013.  At that time, Joe Oliver, then Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources, stated that “Federal Cabinet approval is required before the licenses can be issued by the National Energy Board.”
