-- KM LNG, an affiliate of Apache Corp., Houston, last week applied to Canada’s National Energy Board for approval to export LNG from the Kitimat LNG terminal planned for Bish Cove, BC.

The application requests permission to export as much as 10 million tonnes/year of LNG for 20 years. The quantity matches the two-phased capacity design of the plant. KM LNG is the operator of the proposed plant. All LNG exported under the applied-for license will be produced by KM LNG.

In November, said the company’s announcement, members of the Haisla Nation approved a lease of reserve lands required for construction and operation of the plant. Federal and provincial environmental authorizations for initial design of the plant have also been obtained.

The plant is owned by affiliates of Apache Canada Ltd. (51%) and EOG Resources Canada Inc. (49%).
