The National Energy Board (NEB or the Board) today announced that it will hold a public hearing to consider an application submitted by KM LNG Operating General Partnership (KM LNG) for a 20-year licence to export natural gas in the form of liquefied natural gas (LNG).

In its application, KM LNG stated that the majority of the natural gas supply for the proposed exports will come from shale gas resources located in northeastern British Columbia. The natural gas would then be liquefied at the proposed Kitimat LNG Terminal and transported by tankers to markets primarily located in Asia Pacific.

KM LNG has requested authorization to export up to 13,300,000 103m3/year (468 billion cubic feet/year) of natural gas in the form of LNG. If the licence is approved by the Board, it would be Canada's first export licence for liquefied natural gas.
