Aurora LNG files export bid
The proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) project at Grassy Point near Prince Rupert, B.C. has filed its export application with Canada's National Energy Board (NEB).
Aurora LNG filed the application about two weeks after signing a sole proponent agreement with the Province of B.C.
The agreement provides the exclusive right to pursue long-term Crown land tenure in the Grassy Point area.
Aurora LNG is a joint venture by Nexen Energy ULC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of CNOOC Limited, INPEX Corporation and JGC Corporation.
“Filing an application for an export license is an important step. However, we still have a lengthy process ahead of us before final investment decisions are made,” said Nexen CEO Kevin Reinhart. “Stakeholder consultation, environmental assessments and affirmation of technical and economic feasibility are required before the project can proceed.”
