LNG project map mistake leaves out Skeena River
A spokesperson for Pacific NorthWest LNG said a map showing a proposed export facility and marine terminal near Prince Rupert and missing the Sheena River was a technical error.
An environmental group is calling for the Canadian Environmental Assessment Office to extend the deadlines, adding mistaken map may have misled the public about a proposed liquefied natural gas project.
The proposed project would see a $25-billion facility built off the coast of northwestern B.C.
Pacific NorthWest LNG plans to build three so-called trains, the cooling units where the liquefication of gas occurs, on Lelu Island in the Port Edward district south of Prince Rupert.
Calgary-based Progress Energy Canada is building the site.
The project will produce six million tonnes of LNG per year each for about 25 years.
A 750-kilometre pipeline is to be constructed to supply gas to the plant.
