#StopWoodfibreLNG

  • Woodfibre LNG will increase fracking, lock in climate pollution, put residents at risk, and threaten the recovery of Howe Sound. Learn why Woodfibre LNG must be stopped for good.

    Can't trust Woodfibre LNG

    Corruption. Illegal donations. Profit shifting and tax avoidance. Environmental destruction. Human rights violations. Animal rights violations, and more...

    Will increase fracking

    85% of BC’s gas is fracked. Woodfibre LNG will increase fracking in Treaty 8 territories, with major impacts to water, climate, and human health.

    LNG is a climate disaster

    LNG is a fossil fuel that creates more greenhouse gases than coal. New LNG infrastructure will lock in extreme climate pollution for decades.

    Puts residents at risk

    If you live within 1.6 km of the LNG tanker route, you are at risk of death by asphyxiation, fire, or explosion if an accident happens.

    Threatens wildlife

    Underwater noise, light pollution, and habitat destruction threaten herring, endangered Chinook salmon, and southern resident orcas.

    Not financially viable

    Woodfibre LNG cannot survive without $50 million a year in government subsidies and tax breaks. That’s $500,000 per job per year. That's ridiculous.

  • What is Woodfibre LNG?

    Woodfibre LNG is a proposed fracked gas (aka methane) export facility located 7 km southwest of Squamish, B.C.

    The project is located at the Woodfibre site, a former pulp and paper mill that has left a toxic legacy of contaminants in Átl’ka7tsem / Howe Sound.

    LNG is liquefied "natural" gas (methane) that will be fracked in northeast BC, transported via a network of pipelines, cooled to -162°C, then shipped as a liquid in LNG carriers, before it is regasified and burned by the end user.

    The project consists of an onshore liquefaction facility, 115 m flare stack, floating storage units, marine offloading, and supporting buildings. LNG carriers will transit past Vancouver and into Howe Sound three to four times per month.

    Proposed Woodfibre LNG site components.

    Liquefaction facility

    Essentially a giant fridge that will hypercool the fracked gas to -162°C so that it becomes liquid.

    Floating storage units

    Two 45-year-old LNG carriers that will be retrofitted as floating storage units to store the LNG. LNG carriers typically only have a life-span of 25 years, but Woodfibre LNG plans to use these for another 40 years, which will make them 85+ years old at end of life.

    115-metre flare stack

    A vertical tower with an open flare to burn off excess gas during start-up and operations, and facility maintenance. Woodfibre LNG estimates that this 115-metre high flare stack will operate 3% of the time, or 262 hours per year.

    LNG carrier

    Fracked LNG will be shipped in LNG Carriers through Howe Sound, anchor in Vancouver, and transit past Victoria before crossing the ocean to get to the final customer. A typical LNG carrier is 300 metres long and 43 metres wide, with a draft of ~12 metres. That’s over double the size of the Queen of Surrey ferry (139 m long).

    Marine offloading

    Docking system to offload heavy equipment and supplies from cargo vessels.

    Proposed Woodfibre LNG site components.
  • Who owns Woodfibre LNG?

    The primary owner of Woodfibre LNG is Sukanto Tanoto, a notorious billionaire from Indonesia with a current net worth of US$2.7 billion.

    Tanoto owns Royal Golden Eagle: a conglomerate of pulp and paper, palm oil, viscose, fracking, and LNG export and import companies which has assets exceeding US$30 billion. Royal Golden Eagle owns Pacific Energy (formerly Pacific Oil & Gas), which owns 70% of Woodfibre LNG, and Pacific Cambriam—a fracking company in northeast BC that will frack the gas needed to supply Woodfibre LNG.

    Royal Golden Eagle and its companies have been linked to:


    Tax evasion and profit shifting

    2012: Fined US$205 million for tax evasion. 2013: Royal Golden Eagle used a web of shell companies for tax evasion, and routinely engaged in fraudulent accounting practices. 2017: Tanoto featured prominently in the Paradise Papers for profit shifting. 2021: Accused of ongoing profit shifting and tax evasion.


    Human rights abuses

    Tanoto’s companies have allegedly forced indigenous people off their land in Indonesia, responding to protesters with paramilitary violence from hired security resulting in six dead and hundreds injured. More than 100 active conflicts with villages and communities in Indonesia were documented in 2019.


    Exploitative child labour

    In 2022, Vice revealed that Toba Pulp Lestari (owned by Tanoto) is illegally employing underage workers who live in inadequate conditions and work hazardous jobs including spraying poison. The child labourers are instructed to hide when officials visit the plantation.


    Animal rights violations

    Tanoto’s palm oil companies have been linked to orangutan graveyards, and widespread destruction of rainforest and peatland in key orangutan and Sumatran Tiger habitat. Orangutans are classified as endangered while Sumatran Tigers are critically endangered with less than 400 tigers in the wild.


    Environmental destruction

    Tanoto holds the “dubious distinction of being the single largest driver of deforestation in the world.” His companies have been linked to illegal deforestation, land grabbing from Indigenous groups, pollution, and illegally burning 230,000 acres of forests in Indonesia between 2015 and 2021.


    Enbridge now owns 30%

    In 2022, the Calgary-based pipeline giant, Enbridge, bought a 30% stake in Woodfibre LNG for $1.5 billion dollars.

    Enbridge also has a long record of environmental destruction and safety issues. For example, in 2010, Enbridge was responsible for the Kalamazoo River oil spill—one of the largest inland oil spills in U.S. history in 2010. In 2018, a pipeline explosion near Prince George, B.C. forcing the evacuation of 125 people living within a 2 km radius, and resulting in province-wide gas shortages through the winter.
