HALIFAX — Pieridae Energy (Canada) Ltd. says it has received Canadian approval to export natural gas in liquefied form to Europe from a proposed LNG terminal in Nova Scotia.
The company says the National Energy Board has granted it 20-year licences to import gas from the US and to export it from the proposed Goldboro LNG terminal.
An affiliated company has already received similar approvals from the US Department of Energy.
Pieridae is one of three groups that has sought the NEB’s approval for liquefied natural gas terminals in Atlantic Canada.
It says a final decision on whether to build an LNG terminal at Goldboro, NS, is expected in 2016.
