Conceptual layout of Aurora LNG facility.View large image of rendering.
Aurora LNG is in the early phases of project development and assessment. While the final design of the LNG facility is still to be determined, it is envisioned to include:
- A natural gas receiving and LNG production facility, which will process approximately 24 million tonnes/year of LNG at full build-out. The facility includes LNG liquefaction trains (essentially large refrigerators that convert natural gas to a liquid) and LNG storage tanks.
- A marine terminal and LNG loading facility capable of accommodating up to two LNG carriers.
- Supporting infrastructure and facilities, including a material offloading facility, laydown area, soils storage area, air and water supply utilities, waste and wastewater management, power generation and supply, camp for operations, maintenance and turnaround personnel, access road and haul roads.
- Temporary infrastructure and facilities during construction, including a pioneer facility, laydown area, construction camp and construction offices.
- Operations of LNG carriers and other supporting marine vessels along the shipping route between the marine terminal at Digby Island and the pilot boarding location at or near Triple Island.
