The proposed Kitimat LNG Project includes the construction of an LNG export facility at Bish Cove, near the Port of Kitimat, 643 kilometres north of Vancouver.

In April 2015, Woodside completed the transaction to acquire a 50% interest in the Kitimat LNG Project in north-western British Columbia, Canada. In May 2015, Woodside transferred its role as upstream operator to Chevron Canada Ltd.

The proposed development concept comprises:

  • Downstream infrastructure with initial capacity of up to 10 mtpa;

  • The proposed 480 kilometre Pacific Trail Pipeline; and

  • Upstream resource in the Liard and Horn River Basins, covering approximately 600,000 acres (100% project).

Natural gas for the project will be sourced from British Columbia's Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin and delivered to the facility by the proposed Pacific Trail Pipeline from Summit Lake, British Columbia to Kitimat.

Benefits agreements have been signed with all 16 First Nations, along the right of way of the natural gas pipeline. All major provincial and federal environmental approvals are in place, including approval from the National Energy Board to export 10 mtpa.

The joint venture continues to focus on appraisal of the Liard Basin, generating a cost competitive LNG solution at the Kitimat site and securing sufficient LNG sales commitments. The joint venture is also working with First Nations to ensure appropriate support and with government to establish a competitive and stable fiscal framework.

Woodside is committed to working with Chevron Canada, First Nations, government and community stakeholders as we progress development of the proposed Kitimat LNG project.
