Project

Western LNG, a Houston-based company, is developing its first floating LNG production facility on the upper coast of British Columbia, Canada. The base facility will be a 0.5 mtpa facility and can be expanded to 1 mtpa as additional pipeline capacity becomes available. Innovative technology, strong financial backing and a geographic advantage are core strengths that position the project well in today's market.

Positioned for Success

Strategically located on the northern coast of British Columbia near some of the world's most abundant natural gas reserves in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin, the Western LNG facility will have access to vast upstream resources for the life of the project. Because this is a floating facility, there will be virtually no environmental impact at the end of the project's life, after providing a positive economic impact to local communities for many years. We are committed to the cause of reducing the climate impact of oil and coal-fired electric generation overseas, as well as for our project facilities and those of our partners. Finally, we seek to work cooperatively with First Nations and other communities impacted by the project to create economic opportunity, build lasting relationships, and to advancing the well-being and personal development of our employees and partners.

Access
Excellent access to existing, underutilized pipeline infrastructure
Location
Proximity to key LNG demand centers
Efficiencies
Location on the Canadian west coast reduces shipping time to market and avoids a key congestion point at the Panama Canal
