CALGARY, Alberta (Reuters) - The Canaport liquefied natural gas import terminal at Saint John, New Brunswick, will be closed until mid-month as the company works on its C$43 million ($43.5 million) Boil-Off Gas project to cut emissions on the site.

Kate Shannon, a spokeswoman for Canaport, said the work is not expected to delay any planned cargoes at the terminal during the two-week shutdown.

Work on the BOG project includes installing a fourth boil-off gas compressor and a new booster gas compressor.
