B.C. to Conduct Environmental Assessment of the WesPac Tilbury Marine Jetty Project

The Canadian Minister of the Environment, the Honourable Leona Aglukkaq, P.C., M.P., has approved British Columbia (B.C.)’s request for substitution to permit B.C.’s Environmental Assessment Office to prepare the environmental assessment for the WesPac Tilbury Marine Jetty Project.  Last week, the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency had ruled that a federal environmental assessment, rather than a provincial environmental assessment, was required for the project.  The project, proposed by WesPac Midstream – Vancouver LLC, involves the construction and operation of a new LNG export marine terminal facility adjacent to the existing FortisBC Tilbury LNG liquefaction plant on Tilbury Island, along the South Arm of the Fraser River in Delta, British Columbia.  Read more in the Surrey Leader article.
