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 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 operation could start in 2025 for a period of 25 years.
