Our Disposal at Sea (DAS) Permit

Our Disposal at Sea (DAS) Permit

Last year, LNG Canada was granted a Disposal at Sea Permit by Environment Canada. This permit is required because we are proposing to dispose of approved dredge material at a designated location at sea. Dredging is an excavation activity carried out underwater with the purpose of gathering up bottom sediments and disposing them in a different location. This ensures that waterways are wide and deep enough for the safe passage of LNG carriers entering and exiting the proposed LNG Canada terminal. We are now applying to Environment Canada for a variance to the validity dates of this permit to begin in late 2017 and end in early 2018.
