Orca LNG Terminal is a proposed LNG terminal in British Columbia, Canada.
"Orca LNG doesn’t yet have an exact location planned, nor has it released a potential pipeline route. Precious little is known about the project backers, who are based in Cypress, Texas, or the proposal itself. Even the project’s website is just a single placeholder page with no information other than a contact email. The NEB granted the project an export license for 24 million metric tons per year. The project proponents plan to operate six floating facilities—converted barges—in the vicinity of Prince Rupert, and each would be able to produce four to five million metric tons of LNG per year. Orca LNG is allegedly in discussion with 'several pipeline companies' about using either existing infrastructure or constructing a dedicated pipeline to transport gas from the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin", according to the Sightline Institute's 2018 report, "Update: Mapping BC’s LNG Proposals."
There have been no updates since 2015, and the project is presumed to be cancelled.
