Haisla Nation and Pembina Pipeline have achieved historic milestones for Canada’s first Indigenous majority-owned floating LNG facility.  After receiving a provincial Environmental Assessment Certificate on March 14, Cedar LNG received a positive Decision Statement from the federal Minister of Environment and Climate Change.

Powered by renewable electricity from BC Hydro, the project plans to be one of the lowest-emitting LNG facilities in the world.  The Project in Kitimat will leverage existing LNG infrastructure, including the Coastal GasLink pipeline, with which Cedar LNG has a long-term transportation agreement.

Cedar LNG has entered into an MOU for a 20-year liquefaction services agreement with ARC Resources. The parties are working towards finalizing a definitive agreement for 1.5 million tonnes of LNG per year, equivalent to approximately 200 million standard cubic feet per day of natural gas, or approximately half of Cedar LNG’s production.
