Got questions? Maybe the answer is here:
LNG stands for Liquefied Natural Gas. It is the same as the natural gas we burn in our homes, but it has been cooled to -162°C so it can be shipped as a liquid in supertankers. It is a very energy-intensive fossil fuel, as it requires huge amounts of energy to cool the natural gas to liquid form.
Fracking is a gas extraction method in northeast BC that discharges millions of gallons of water and toxic chemicals per well each year. Environment Canada recently released a report that identifies fracking as a serious threat to fresh water. To expand the LNG export industry it is estimated that 50,000 new fracking wells will be needed.

The Woodfibre LNG Project is a proposed small-scale liquefied natural gas (LNG) processing and export facility, located approximately seven kilometres southwest of Squamish, British Columbia, on the former Woodfibre pulp mill site.
