Background

Atlantic Coast LNG Terminal is a proposed LNG terminal in Nova Scotia, Canada.[1] In December 2015, Canada's National Energy Board granted the project a 25-year import/export license. The permit would allow the terminal to import 2.3 Bcf/d from the US and to export up to 2 Bcf/d from a terminal in Nova Scotia.[2]

The facility would be built and owned by Hiranandani Group of Mumbai, India, through a subsidiary company called Atlantic Coast (or AC) LNG Inc. The plan is to build the facility in Nova Scotia and use primarily Marcellus/Utica gas imported from the United States via the Maritimes & Northeast Gas Pipeline (M&NE).[1]

There have been no development updates since January 2016 and the project is presumed to be cancelled.
