West Coast Olefins complex to be built in Prince George.
West Coast Olefins of Canada recently announced that it will build a $5.6 billion dollar ethylene complex in Prince George, as originally envisioned in 2019. The company had been considering an alternate location near Mcleod Lake, just north of Prince George.
The return to Prince George’s location, more specifically, BCR Industrial Park was prompted by concerns around the McLeod Lake location by the area’s indigenous First Nations group and a boundary line court decision for the area. With the return to the original, straightforward location in the BCR Industry Park, West Coast Olefins can begin regulatory procedures for the project. This plant is being conceived with a capacity for 1 million tons of polymer grade ethylene to begin production in 2024. An FID is hoped for next year.
