Export and Import Licence Applications

[Gas and Natural Gas (including LNG), and Propane]

The National Energy Board (NEB) will assess export licence applications to determine if the volume of the applied for energy commodity proposed for export, is surplus to Canadian requirements. The NEB considers gas import licence applications, including licence applications for liquefied natural gas (LNG).

For gas, natural gas, and propane licence applications, the NEB uses a written process that includes a public comment period for impacted persons. Following the comment period, the Board will complete its assessment of the application, and either approve or deny the application. The issuance of a licence must also be approved by the Governor in Council. [Learn more]

As of October 2016, the National Energy Board has received 42 applications to export / import LNG:

  • 32 of the 42 applications were approved by the NEB
  • 3 of the 42 applications are under review
  • 6 of the 42 applications were deemed incomplete
  • 1 of the 42 applications was withdrawn by the applicant

As of October 2016, the Provincial applications received are as follows:

  • 26 applications in British Columbia
