Cedar LNG made several innovative design decisions to minimize the Project's environmental footprint and ensure it is one of the lowest-emitting LNG facilities in the world. One of the most important decisions was to power the facility with renewable electricity from BC Hydro. In addition, the choice of site location allows the Project to leverage existing LNG infrastructure, including the Coastal GasLink pipeline, with which Cedar LNG has a long-term transportation agreement, a deep-water port, roads, and other infrastructure.
Cedar LNG also received its first permit from the BC Energy Regulator for the approximately 8.5 kilometre pipeline that will connect the Project into the Coastal GasLink pipeline.
Critical to Cedar LNG's success to date has been the strong support of neighbouring Nations. Years of collaboration and constructive engagement with these Nations have helped to ensure the Project will be designed, constructed, and operated responsibly, while providing benefits through construction jobs and contracting, training opportunities, long-term employment, and other measures that will contribute to economic prosperity in the region.
Cedar LNG has entered into an MOU for a 20-year liquefaction services agreement with ARC Resources. The parties are working towards finalizing a definitive agreement for 1.5 million tonnes of LNG per year, equivalent to approximately 200 million standard cubic feet per day of natural gas, or approximately half of Cedar LNG's production.

A final investment decision for the Project is anticipated in the third quarter of 2023.
