What is happening?

OTTAWA, ON, Sept. 22, 2021 /CNW/ - The Impact Assessment Agency of Canada (the Agency) is conducting a federal environmental assessment of the proposed Énergie Saguenay Project, located in Quebec.

The Agency invites the public and Indigenous groups to comment on the draft Environmental Assessment Report, which includes the Agency's conclusions and recommendations regarding the potential environmental effects of the project and their significance, the proposed mitigation measures, and the follow-up program.

The Agency also invites comments on the potential environmental assessment conditions for the project. Final conditions would become legally-binding on the proponent if the project is allowed to proceed.

What is the proposed project?

GNL Québec Inc. is proposing the construction and operation of a natural gas liquefaction facility and export terminal located in the District of La Baie, Saguenay City, Quebec. The site of the project would be located near the Grande-Anse marine terminal (Port of Saguenay). The main infrastructures are the natural gas liquefaction facilities with a production capacity of 10.5 million tons per year, port infrastructures for marine tanker loading of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), LNG storage tanks and support infrastructures. The wharf would be designed to accommodate vessels with a capacity of 100,000-deadweight tonnage (DWT). The maritime transport of LNG would take place on the St. Lawrence and Saguenay Rivers. Between 150 and 200 shipments per year are expected, or six to eight ship transits per week. The operation would last between 25 and 50 years.
