Trigon submits proposed LPG project in Canada

February 7, 2024 By    

Canadian-based Trigon Pacific Terminals Ltd. completed the project description for its proposed Trigon Pacific LPG Project and submitted it to the Prince Rupert Port Authority in Prince Rupert, British Columbia, Canada.

According to Trigon, the project description outlines project attributes, including the advantages of minimal environmental impact, low development costs and the opportunity for needed diversification within the port and along the west coast of North America. Trigon says the storage and handling equipment will be built on existing land repurposed for LP gas exports and will leverage existing LPG vessel loading infrastructure. It previously said it plans to add upwards of 32 million gallons of LPG storage capacity.

The company is also advancing key engineering work, including rail design and risk assessment planning. New rail-unloading facilities will provide complete unit train unloading capability.

“The Trigon LPG project is about opening up Canada’s northwestern export trade corridor and providing jobs and economic opportunity for a region that is often left behind,” says Rob Booker, CEO of Trigon. “Without investments like ours, opportunity will continue to migrate elsewhere – which is particularly concerning given the upcoming ban on thermal coal exports that make up such of big part of exports handled through Prince Rupert today.”

Trigon is pursuing legal action to enforce its lease rights to handle additional Canadian commodities. Subject to regulatory review and other approvals, it anticipates being ready to start operations by late 2027.
