Canadian Environmental Agency Concludes Pacific NorthWest LNG Terminal Unlikely to Cause Significant Adverse Effects

The Globe and Mail reports that scientists from Fisheries and Oceans Canada, a federal agency, sent a letter last week to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency concluding that “[t]he effects of the [Pacific NorthWest LNG] marine structure on fish and fish habitat have been categorized as having a low potential of resulting in significant adverse effects.”  Malaysian state oil company Petronas is the primary sponsor of the proposed Pacific NorthWest LNG export terminal near Lelu Island, British Columbia.  A final investment decision for the project has not yet been made.
