Bear Head LNG Corporation (BHLC), a subsidiary of Liquefied Natural Gas Ltd, is planning to undertake the construction of a LNG export facility in Nova Scotia, Canada.
The project involves construction of an LNG export facility with a capacity of eight million tonnes per annum on 132ha of land in multiple phases of two to four mtpa each.
It includes the construction of storage tanks, marine loading facilities, processing facilities and related infrastructure, the installation of equipment, safety and security systems, and the laying of pipelines.
It also includes the laying of a gas transmission pipeline to connect with the The Maritimes & Northeast Pipeline (M&NP) pipeline near Goldboro, Nova Scotia, a distance of approximately 62.5 km.
In July 2014, BHLC raised US$38.6 million to acquire the Bear Head LNG project.
On August 27, 2014, BHLC acquired the project from a subsidiary of Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (Anadarko) for US$11 million.
On March 16, 2015, BHLC secured approvals from Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board (UARB).
On May 19, 2015, BHLC secured environmental approvals for the proposed project. KBR Inc secured the Front End Engineering and Design (FEED) Contract.
In May 2015, FEED works commenced.
On July 20, 2015, BHLC received approval from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to export up to 440 Bcf per year of U.S. natural gas of U.S. natural gas to Canada, and up to eight mtpa of LNG from Canada to free trade agreement (FTA) countries.
BHLC has applied to Canada's National Energy Board (NEB) for authority to import natural gas from the U.S. and export up to eight mtpa of LNG in 2019 from Canada, with expanded authority to 12 mtpa in 2024. However, the expansion plan for 2024 are yet to be approved.
On August 14, 2015, The National Energy Board has approved export and import licenses for the proposed project. The board issued an import license for natural gas and approved the plant to export liquefied natural gas.
The company must address 32 terms and conditions to control greenhouse-gas emissions and to reduce LNG impacts on wildlife, water and wetlands.
In June 2016, BHLC received federal approval for a licence to export liquefied natural gas. The licence grants the company to import up to 14.2 billion m3 of natural gas per year.
In July 2016, BHLC received Environmental approval from Nova Scotia for the greenhouse gas management plan.
On March 20, 2017, Technical Review Process of Marine Terminal Systems and Transshipment Sites (TERMPOL) review committee completed the review of BHLC's marine terminal systems and transshipment sites.
In October 2017,BHLC made a tax agreement with Municipality of the County of Richmond for the project.
