Bear Head LNG GHG Management Plan Approved
Bear Head LNG Corporation Inc. (Bear Head LNG) received Nova Scotia Environment’s (NSE) approval for its Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Management Plan for its liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility on the Strait of Canso in Richmond County, Nova Scotia.
The GHG Management Plan provides Bear Head LNG’s strategy for managing GHG emissions through technology selection, design of the facility, and operations.
“Approval of Bear Head LNG’s GHG Management Plan is welcome news,” said Greg Vesey, Managing Director and CEO of LNGL and President of Bear Head LNG. “Bear Head LNG is designing a best-in-class LNG facility, utilizing state of the art technology. Nova Scotia Environment’s approval of Bear Head LNG’s emissions management system is an endorsement of LNGL’s optimized single mixed refrigerant (OSMR) liquefaction technology, as one of the lowest emitters of GHG for LNG liquefaction projects. We are confident that our proprietary technology will meet the new GHG performance standards that have been proposed by NSE.”
Bear Head’s parent company, Liquefied Natural Gas Limited (LNGL), owns the OSMR technology, which is patented in 16 countries/jurisdictions including Canada and the United States. OSMR technology provides a considerably more efficient design arrangement that generates lower emissions and improved project economics.
