Liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities
FortisBC is the owner and operator of the only two LNG facilities in British Columbia. These facilities have a variety of special features designed for the safe handling of LNG—including sophisticated monitoring, control and alarm systems. Regular maintenance and upgrading of equipment, operator training, safety equipment and continuous process monitoring ensure safe operation.
In operation since 1971, our LNG Facility on Tilbury Island in Delta, BC is located near the FortisBC transmission pipeline system just a few kilometres from metropolitan Vancouver.
Tilbury Phase 1 LNG expansion
Learn more about the Tilbury Phase 1 LNG Expansion Project, which could help meet the long-term projected demand for LNG as a marine fuel.
Tilbury Phase 2 LNG expansion
Learn more about the Tilbury Phase 2 LNG Expansion Project, which could improve the resiliency of our gas system and help meet the long-term projected demand for LNG as a lower carbon alternative fuel for marine and overseas customers.
Since 2011, this facility has helped keep natural gas costs lower even when demand is high, so our customers can keep their heat and stoves on during system interruptions.
The 20 hectare Mt. Hayes facility is located approximately six km northwest of Ladysmith. The storage facility, supplied by FortisBC’s existing pipeline systems, holds 1.5 billion cubic feet of liquefied natural gas.
