Vancouver, B.C. ⁠— June 16, 2020: WesPac Midstream-Vancouver announced today that the proponent of the WesPac Tilbury Marine Jetty Project is now Tilbury Jetty Limited Partnership, to be jointly owned by Fortis LNG and Seaspan. The Tilbury Marine Jetty could be a vital link in the west coast LNG supply chain and help, through enabling marine supply of LNG, reduce greenhouse gas emissions in B.C. and abroad.

WesPac has worked to develop the Jetty project for several years, which is adjacent to Fortis’ Tilbury LNG facility. The Tilbury Jetty Limited Partnership believes that this project will play an important role in meeting growing demand for LNG as a marine fuel and for export markets.

The project is currently completing an environmental assessment (EA) under the direction of the BC Environmental Assessment Office. The environmental assessment is expected to conclude later this year. If approved, construction could begin in 2021 and be in limited service for marine LNG fueling in 2022.

Both Fortis and Seaspan have well-established businesses in British Columbia. Fortis will bring decades of experience in British Columbia-based LNG operations to the Tilbury Jetty Limited Partnership and Seaspan will bring decades of experience in marine jetty operations including those on the Fraser River.

Tilbury Jetty Limited Partnership, the proponent of the Tilbury Marine Jetty Project, is committed to engaging with Indigenous groups and local communities as the Project continues to move forward.
