 (VANCOUVER, B.C.) -- The Ksi Lisims LNG project has received the Canada Energy Regulator’s approval for a 40-year license to export LNG. 

An export license is granted when the Canadian Energy Regulator (CER) is satisfied that the natural gas supply required to meet a project’s export needs are surplus to the foreseeable Canadian demand requirements. The export license will be issued by the CER following approval of the Minister of Natural Resources Canada. 

Ksi Lisims LNG is a unique project between the Nisga’a Nation and Rockies LNG, a partnership of Canadian natural gas producers, along with Western LNG, a North American leader in developing innovative LNG export facilities to help meet growing global demand for secure lower-carbon energy.
