    2.0 PROJECT DESCRIPTION The Keltic Project will be an integrated facility, receiving LNG by ship, for delivery to the M&NP after regasification, and utilizing the natural gas liquids for the production of polyethylene and polypropylene pellets for shipment to customers across North America. A cogeneration plant will be included to supply power and process heat. The Project has completed Pre Front End Engineering Design to date and will proceed shortly to final Front End Engineering Design (FEED). The essential components of the Project are defined under the following four headings:

    • LNG facility, including marine terminal;

    • Petrochemical facilities including shipping logistics area and marginal wharf;

    • Co-generation plant; and

    • Utilities and support facilities. Each of the essential components is described in the Section 2.3 and summarized in Table 2.0- 1. Figures 2.0-1A and B show the overall layout of the site.

    TABLE 2.0-1 Key Characteristics of Keltic Project Components Component Description

    LNG Facility Consists of marine terminal, transfer pipelines, storage, regasification , nitrogen production plant, and extraction facilities, a vapour handling system and associated infrastructure/support facilities including: • Natural gas pipeline connecting to the MN&P pipeline, • Natural gas pipeline connecting to the co-generation plant; • Natural gas pipeline connecting to the petrochemical plant; • Programmable Logic Control (PLC) based control system; • Emergency shutdown system; • Hazard detection system; • Security system and facilities; • Fire response system; • Natural gas vent; • Plant air, instrument air and nitrogen systems; • Electric power distribution and control systems; • Storm-water system; • Control building; • Access roadways and service buildings; • Fire and emergency access roads; and • Other facilities as required to support safe, efficient, and reliable operation.

    The maximum transfer rate from ships will be at 24,000 cubic metres per hour (m3/hr) @ 75 pounds per square inch gauge (psig) -160 degrees Celsius (oC). Storage will be in 3 full containment tanks of 160,000 cubic metres (m3) each (with future expansion to 6).

    Component Description Petrochemical Facilities including Storage and Shipping Logistics Area and Marginal Wharf

    The facility is fed by ethane and propane obtained from the LNG terminal and the SOEI pipeline. The facility produces primarily ethylene and propylene using steam cracking. Polyethylene and polypropylene pellets are subsequently produced for shipment. The following will be produced as pellets for shipment: • Polypropylene; • High Density Polyethylene (HDPE); • Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE);and • Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE). Products are then stored in silos at the shipping and logistics area near the marginal wharf. The petrochemical facilities use power from the co-generation plant.

    Co-generation Plant Includes gas turbines and heat recovery steam generators with a capacity of approximately 200 mega watts (MW) to meet Project electrical energy requirements

    Utilities and Common Support Facilities

    Common support facilities include raw water supply sourced by way of a dam with a fish- way, raw water intake and pumping infrastructure at Meadow Lake; raw water treatment plant; wastewater collection; treatment and disposal; storm-water management; central administration and maintenance facilities; emergency medical facilities; fire station, helipad and upgrades to the rural road network.

    2.1 THE PROPONENT The Proponent, Keltic is a Canadian registered corporation, committed to establishing a petrochemical complex, LNG importing facilities, and a co-generation plant at Goldboro, Guysborough County, Nova Scotia. The head office of Keltic is located in Halifax, Nova Scotia with coordinates as follows: Address: Keltic Petrochemicals Inc. 5151 George Street, Suite 603, Halifax, Nova Scotia. B3J 1M5 Contact: Mr. W. Kevin Dunn, President Tel: (902) 422 4557 FAX: (902) 422 5980 kevin.dunn@kelticpetrochemicals.ca It is Keltic’s corporate commitment to provide an economical and sustainable complex in accordance to the highest level of environmental goals and principles. As the agreements between Keltic and the financial, licensors and petroleum firms are finalized; a detailed EMS will be developed for each component of the Project.

    Keltic and its various partners will jointly provide detailed EMSs in compliance with the environmental impact statement and approvals granted. Although Keltic has no corporate experience in this area, they have aligned themselves with the best in the industry. Keltic’s corporate structure is depicted in Figure 2.1-1. 2.1.1 Project Participants 2.1.1.1 Maple LNG In March 2006, Keltic entered into an agreement with Maple LNG where Maple will acquire 100% of the LNG portion of the Keltic Petrochemicals combined Petrochemical/LNG Project. Maple LNG is owned by 4Gas North America Ltd. and Suntera Canada Ltd. 4Gas operates on a stand-alone basis with a management team dedicated entirely to LNG and power. 4Gas focuses on developing and operating LNG terminals around the wo
