Goldboro LNG Environmental Assessment Approved

The Goldboro LNG export terminal project, sponsored by Pieridae Energy (Canada) Ltd., has received environmental assessment (EA) approval, with conditions, from the Minister of Environment for the Province of Nova Scotia.  The proposed terminal would receive imported natural gas from the United States via pipeline and export it as LNG to international markets.  According to an article in The Globe and Mail, the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board has authority for final approval of the project.  Pieridae’s press release states that a final investment decision on the project will be made in 2015 and, if they decide to proceed, Goldboro LNG will be operational in 2020.
