The North Shore LNG Project is a collaboration of five municipalities in Northwestern Ontario, Marathon, Terrace Bay, Schreiber, Manitouwadge, and Wawa. The proposed project involves transporting LNG by truck from Nipigon to local regasification facilities in each of the five North Shore municipalities. The North Shore LNG Project has partnered with Northeast Midstream LP to develop its regional natural gas delivery system. The goal is to design, construct, own, and operate local gas delivery systems in each of the municipalities, including the distribution mains, service pipes and meters as well as LNG storage tanks and associated vaporization systems.
In January of 2019, it was reported that the North Shore provincial government was providing $27 million toward the construction of the liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant in Nipigon.
