ABOUT TILBURY PACIFIC

Project summary
WesPac Midstream – Vancouver LLC is proposing to build a liquefied natural gas (LNG) marine jetty at an industrial site on the lower Fraser River in Delta, B.C.

What we want to achieve
Tilbury Pacific could position B.C. to play a leading role in the global shift to lower emissions energy choices. Specifically, it could:

  • Supply local ships and ocean-going vessels that are switching to LNG.
  • Export LNG produced by FortisBC’s Tilbury facility through specialized carrier ships.

What we’re proposing to build

  • Marine jetty with berthing and mooring facilities
  • Access trestle connecting to the shoreline
  • LNG line linking to FortisBC’s Tilbury LNG facility
  • Vapour return line, water supply and other utilities

WHY WE CHOSE TILBURY

We chose this site because it’s a former industrial site next door to FortisBC’s Tilbury LNG facility. In operation since 1971, the facility already has the ability to produce LNG, which means our project will have a smaller physical footprint. The site also features a few other advantages:

 

Established Shipping Route
It’s just 21 km from the mouth of the Fraser River, in an industrial area with existing deep-sea marine terminals.
Industrial Use
Weyerhaeuser’s Northwest Hardwood Mill was once located at the site and included a marine terminal.
Industrial Zoning
City of Delta’s Official Community Plan zoned the site for light, heavy and water-related industrial uses.
Isolated Location
The site is located in an industrial area, away from residential neighbourhoods.

WHY WE’RE INVESTING IN LNG

The global market is shifting as more countries are realizing the cost and environmental benefits of using LNG for their energy needs. Here are some of the most significant factors:

  • Abundant supply: Canada has enough marketable natural gas to maintain current production for over 300 years, according to the Natural Resources Canada.
  • Rising demand: The International Energy Agency is forecasting strong gas growth in Asia, particularly China, which is expected to pass Japan as the world’s largest importer as early as 2019.
  • New emissions standards for ships: By 2020, new International Maritime Organization regulations will require shipping companies to reduce sulphur oxides (SOx) emissions from the use of heavy fuel oils. Shipping companies are turning to LNG as an alternative to oil-based fuels.
