Bear Head LNG Corporation, a subsidiary of Liquefied Natural Gas Limited recently received a construction permit for its proposed 8 mtpa LNG project in Nova Scotia.
The permit was issued by the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board. The company expects to receive the final approval from the Nova Scotia Environmental Board in the second quarter of 2015.
Liquefied Natural Gas plans to develop an LNG export facility at the partially developed Bear Head site on Canada’s East Coast near Port Hawkesbury, Nova Scotia.
The key assets of Bear Head LNG include a 255-acre site comprising industrial-zoned land (180 acres) and deep-water acreage (75 acres) as well as foundations in place for two 180,000 cubic meter LNG tanks. The land has been cleared, a majority of site works completed and roads constructed.
The Bear Head LNG export facility is likely to start commercial operation in 2019.
