The 25-year license, which is subject to the approval of the governor in council, allows WesPac to export a maximum of 116.44 billion cubic meters.

Prior to the approval, the NEB determined that the proposed gas export quantity is in excess to Canadian requirements.

The NEB also said that that Canada’s gas resource base and the overall gas resource base in North America can accommodate reasonably foreseeable Canadian demand, including the LNG exports proposed by WesPac.

The export points which have been approved include the loading arm outlet at the WesPac LNG Marine Terminal in Delta, British Columbia (BC); the marine cargo terminals in the metropolitan area of Vancouver, BC; and the highway border crossings along the international boundary between BC and the US.

In 2014, WesPac Midstream filed an application with the NEB, for a license to export LNG sourced from the FortisBC Energy-owned Tilbury LNG Plant.WesPac Midstream develops, constructs, owns, and operates energy infrastructure across North America. Press Release:
