You are likely aware of the contentious decision made by the federal government to approve the Woodfibre LNG Environmental Assessment (EA). Did you know that the EA did not even consider the dangers of LNG tankers?
A 60,000 tonne LNG tanker carries the heat equivalent of 72 Hiroshima Atom Bombs. The danger lies in an LNG vapour cloud released from a breached cargo tank. LNG vapour can be ignited with the slightest spark (e.g. cigarette), and could cause an enormous spreading fireball, lethal to anything within several km.
Woodfibre LNG tankers would travel through our ferry route. If a tanker ever collided with a ferry or ran aground, the results would be catastrophic.
