Background

Grassy Point LNG Terminal is a proposed LNG terminal in British Columbia, Canada.[2]

"Project backer Woodside Energy, an Australian oil and gas company, hopes to produce 20 million metric tons of LNG per year at the proposed Grassy Point LNG facility. It would be located 30 kilometers north of Prince Rupert, across the bay from the Lax Kw’alaams First Nation’s reserve land. Woodside is considering either an onshore LNG facility or a floating facility. The pipeline route has not yet been determined, but the feed gas is expected to be transported from the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin by third-party pipeline. In a June 2016 company report, Woodside said it is continuing to 'investigate the potential' of developing the facility. The company has likely placed the facility on the back burner while it figures out its recent acquisitions, which include a joint partnership in the proposed Kitimat LNG facility...A 2017 Investor Briefing gave updates on the Kitimat facility but none on Grassy Point," according to the Sightline Institute's 2018 report, "Update: Mapping BC’s LNG Proposals."[3]

In March of 2018, Woodside Energy withdrew from the Grassy Point project, effectively cancelling the proposed terminal.[1]
