The Proposed Project

GNL Québec Inc. is proposing the construction and operation of a natural gas liquefaction (LNG) facility and export terminal located in the District of La Baie, Saguenay City, Quebec. The site of the project is located near the Grande-Anse marine terminal (Port of Saguenay). The main infrastructures are the natural gas liquefaction facilities with a production capacity of 11 million tons per year, port infrastructures for marine tanker loading of LNG, LNG storage tanks and support infrastructures. The wharf would be designed to accommodate vessels with a capacity of 100,000 deadweight tonnage (DWT). The proponent plans to begin the project construction in 2018. The operation could start at the end of 2021 and would last a minimum of 25 years.
