Chevron Aims for World's Lowest Emission LNG Plant in New Kitimat Plan

Chevron will seek approval to modify its plans for the Kitimat liquefied natural gas export facility on Canada's Pacific Coast to an all-electric design it says will result in the lowest greenhouse gas emissions per ton of LNG of any large project in the world, according to a recent filing with British Columbia's environmental assessment office.

As part of a fresh round of approvals sought, CVX says the propose project will become an "all-electric plant" powered by hydroelectricity, allowing expanded capacity without the corresponding increase in emissions of a traditional LNG facility. Liquefied natural gas is created by cooling gas to -260 degrees F in an energy-intensive process typically powered by burning natural gas; Kitimat LNG instead proposes electric motor drives to run all liquefaction, utility compressors, pumps and fans with hydropower bought from the provincial utility.
