Pieridae is currently developing Goldboro LNG, a proposed export LNG terminal located in Goldboro, Nova Scotia, Canada.
Goldboro LNG will include a natural gas liquefaction plant and facilities for the storage and export of LNG, including a marine jetty for loading. The facility is anticipated to produce approximately five million metric tons of LNG per year and have on-site storage capacity of 420,000 cubic metres of LNG.
The facility is located adjacent to the Maritimes & Northeast Pipeline, a 1,400-kilometre transmission pipeline system built to transport natural gas between developments in Nova Scotia, Atlantic Canada and the northeastern United States.
Liquefied Natural Gas, also referred to as LNG, is natural gas cooled in the process known as liquefaction, to minus 161 degrees centigrade. Cooling natural gas in this manner reduces its volume by 600x and turns it from a gas to a liquid. The LNG is then transported all around the world using specialized ocean going tankers. At its destination the LNG is returned back into a gaseous form for use.visit Goldboro LNG's website
