LNG Canada has agreed to extend the current BC Works Terminal A in exchange for their Terminal B, which handles exports of finished products for Rio Tinto’s ongoing operations.

The location of Terminal B is the same with LNG Canada's LNG export terminal in Kitimat, British Columbia.

The project will incorporate a 320 x 60 metre terminal for the Rio Tinto BC Works, and a berth for cargo barges. These elements will be constructed on more than 400 steel piles with a concrete deck of about 20,000 m3.

LNG Canada is responsible for designing, building and operating the LNG Canada export terminal. The first phase of construction will last about five years.
