Open Houses for Proposed LNG Marine Jetty on Tilbury

Mar 22, 2019

On March 20, 2019, the BC Environmental Assessment Office formally accepted the application from WesPac Midstream for an environmental assessment certificate for the proposal to build a liquefied natural gas (LNG) marine jetty facility north of the existing FortisBC LNG plant at Tilbury Island in Delta. A new consultation period, which includes a 180-day application review process, is now underway. As part of the consultation, the BC Environmental Assessment Office will hold open houses in Delta and Richmond on the following dates:

  • April 9, 2019 from 4 pm - 8 pm at the Coast Tsawwassen Inn, 1665 56 St, Delta
  • April 10, 2019 from 4 pm - 8 pm at the Holiday Inn Express, 10688 No 6 Rd, Richmond

The proposed marine jetty would provide for the berthing of marine barges and carriers and the transfer of LNG for delivery to local fuel markets and offshore export markets. The marine jetty will require the removal of existing abandoned marine infrastructure, the construction of a new marine jetty (access trestle, loading platform and mooring dolphins), the construction of LNG infrastructure to receive processed LNG for transfer to marine vessels and safety and process control systems. The supply of LNG for Tilbury marine jetty will come via a pipeline from the existing adjacent FortisBC Tilbury LNG plant.
