Pieridae Energy (Canada) Ltd. says it has received Canadian approval to export natural gas in liquefied form to Europe from a proposed terminal in Nova Scotia.

The company says the National Energy Board has granted it 20-year licences to import gas from the United States and to export it from the proposed Goldboro LNG terminal.

An affiliated company has already received similar approvals from the U.S. Department of Energy.

It says a final decision on whether to build the LNG terminal is expected in 2016.
