One of the liquefied natural gas projects to run through the northwest has been scrapped.
Shell Canada says they will discontinue any development on the Prince Rupert LNG project.
It was slated to bring natural gas from the northeastern part of the province to be developed in to LNG on Ridley Island and shipped to international markets.
They say their Prince Rupert office will be open through May to complete community engagement.
The project could be good news for Pacific NorthWest LNG, who’s reportedly been eyeing Ridley Island amid protests of their proposed terminal on Lelu Island.
While being separate projects, Shell does note it remains fully committed to work with their partners on the LNG Canada project in Kitimat.
