Nipigon LNG project gets $27M support from Province

January 28, 2019

THUNDER BAY – The Ontario Province on Friday morning announced a $27 million contribution to build a liquefied natural gas plant about 20 kilometres north of Nipigon on Highway 11, which would supply natural gas to Marathon, Schreiber, Terrace Bay, Manitouwadge and Wawa.


The plant, which would be connected to the TransCanada pipeline, cools the natural gas to – 162C to convert it to a liquid state. The liquefied natural gas can then be trucked across the region to the communities, which would each have a depot to convert it back to gas to be distributed through their local network.


Infrastructure minister Monte McNaughton, who made the announcement in Thunder Bay, said it could lead to the creation of between 700 and 2,800 jobs.


The project is being led by Northeast Midstream, an Ontario-based energy partnership.


Construction of the plant, which has a total estimated cost of $54 million, is expected to start in 2020.
