The new liquefied natural gas (LNG) marine jetty in Delta has received approval from the Impact Assessment Agency of Canada following a thorough environmental assessment based on science and Indigenous knowledge. The project includes the berthing and transferring of LNG from the FortisBC Tilbury LNG plan to marine barges and carriers for delivery to local fuel and offshore export markets. The Agency’s approval comes with 22 legally enforceable provincial conditions that include plans to reduce GHG emissions and opportunities for First Nations. With the final environmental assessment decision, the Tilbury Jetty Limited Partnership can now proceed with obtaining any other necessary permits and authorizations from federal departments – these include authorizations and approvals from Fisheries and Oceans Canada under the Fisheries Act, Transport Canada under the Canadian Navigable Waters Act and Environment and Climate Change Canada under the Disposal at Sea Regulations. The project is to be jointly owned by Fortis LNG Jetty Limited Partnership and Seaspan.
