Canada’s most northerly LNG facility now operational

The most northerly LNG facility in Canada is now operational, Richmond, BC-based Cryopeak LNG Solutions said June 7.

The Tamaska Fort Nelson LNG plant is capable of producing 27,000 gallons/day of LNG from grid-supplied natural gas, but is scalable to 100,000 gallons/day under its current permit. Construction began in April 2020.

From Fort Nelson, in the northeast corner of BC, the plant will supply LNG to northern communities, mines and power generating facilities as far north as Inuvik, 200 km north of the Arctic Circle. Deliveries will be executed using Cryopeak’s 20,000-gallon B-train transport trailers operating from the company’s new transportation and logistics terminal in Fort Nelson.

“We are excited to open this new production facility in Fort Nelson,” Cryopeak CEO Calum McClure said. “We appreciate the support in realising this project from the Fort Nelson First Nations and the community of Fort Nelson and look forward to delivering natural gas to our remote customers, lowering energy costs and reducing carbon emissions.”
