On July 21, 2014, the new Liquefied Natural Gas Facility Regulation, BC Reg 146/2014, was enacted by the BC Oil and Gas Commission (“OGC”). As the name suggests, the regulation is intended to address regulation of LNG facilities, and also updates LNG-related provisions previously in the Pipeline and Liquefied Natural Gas Facility Regulation, BC Reg 281/2010, which has been renamed the Pipeline Regulation. The OGC has also issued version 1.0 of its Liquefied Natural Gas Facility Permit Application and Operations Manual, which provides guidance for applicants wishing to construct an LNG facility in accordance with the new regulation.
