WesPac is proposing to construct and operate an LNG marine jetty on Tilbury Island in Delta, BC. The purpose of the proposed Project is to transfer LNG to barges and mid-size marine vessels for delivery to both local and offshore markets. The size of vessels that will use the Jetty is consistent with, or smaller than, other ships currently navigating the Fraser River. The Project will not involve storage or processing of LNG.

The Project site was selected because it is on an established shipping route and is located in an existing industrial marine area that already contains marine jetties on adjacent sites. The site was previously used for industrial marine functions as the former Weyerhaeuser Northwest Hardwood Mill. The Project will improve the ecology of the existing site by restoring the shoreline adjacent to the Jetty where it was disturbed by previous activities. The adjacency of the proposed Jetty to the FortisBC Tilbury LNG Plant will support efficient movement of LNG from the existing Plant to marine vessels, minimizing impacts related to development of new transportation or transmission infrastructure.
