Woodfibre LNG: Fracking comes with environmental impactsInfographic

Publication - July 7, 2016 - By Maximilian Kniewasser, Steven Cretney

Woodfibre LNG Limited has proposed the development of a liquefied natural gas export terminal southwest of Squamish, B.C.

This infographic outlines the potential environmental impacts of the Woodfibre LNG project.

The plant and its associated upstream operations could result in the drilling of 24 extra gas wells, the emission of 0.81 million tonnes of carbon pollution, and the usage of 0.5 million cubic metres of freshwater per year.

The Pembina Institute created the infographic for My Sea to Sky using the B.C. Shale Scenario Tool.
