Nexen Energy Ulc (Nexen), a subsidiary of CNOOC Limited, Inpex Corporation (Inpex), and JGC Corporation (JGC) are jointly undertaking the construction of Aurora LNG Terminal project at Digby Island, near Prince Rupert, British Columbia, Canada.
The project involves the construction of an LNG export terminal over an area of 400ha in two phases.
The first phase involves the construction of two trains having an initial capacity between 5 million and 6 million tons per annum each, along with up to three storage tanks and two marine berths. Based on demand, the second phase will add two trains with the capacity of up to 24 million tons of LNG per year and a third loading berth.
It also includes the construction of a receiving unit, an LNG transmitting station, LNG jetty and the construction of other related facilities, the laying of pipelines, and the installation of safety systems, fire fighting systems, vaporizers and metering units.
In November 2013, CNOOC signed a land-use agreement with the government of British Columbia for the project implementation.
In December 2013, the joint venture partners signed an exclusive agreement with the state government to build the terminal.
In January 2015, CNOOC changed the project plans to build the LNG terminal at the Digby Island than at previously proposed Grassy Point site.
In February 2015, public consultation activity on the project was held.
Nexen has submitted an environmental assessment report (EAR) to Environmental Assessment Office of British Columbia (EAO) in the third quarter of 2016.
In June 2017, EAO restarts environmental review process.
The construction activities are expected to commence in 2024.
