At Newfoundland LNG Ltd. conducting business in a safe and environmentally responsible manner is our commitment to the community and our stakeholders. The terminal will use a comprehensive safety system with state-of-the-art technology, 24-hour monitoring, specialized training and mutual redundancies to maintain security and avoid accidents and incidents—and, if necessary, to immediately handle them. We are working with all federal, provincial and local safety authorities to ensure we meet or exceed the most rigorous safety standards in the world.
The Grassy Point (LNG) Transshipment and Storage Terminal will comply with, and at times exceed, Newfoundland and Labrador’s and Canada’s codes and standards. An environmental protection plan, a risk assessment study and an employment equity plan will be approved by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador prior to the terminal getting approval to begin construction. These documents will consider all aspects of design, management and operation of the terminal, particularly how potential accidents would be prevented.
The facilities will have multiple containment systems, proven operational procedures and many other processes to ensure all activities are carried out efficiently without an affect on the environment.
