Governments have seen the positive benefits of developing natural gas resources in Northwest British Columbia.
Municipal governments recognize that LNG development will bring investment, job creation and new economic
opportunities and believe it can be accomplished while protecting the environment and building a better quality
of life for future generations in communities across British Columbia.
The provincial government has been preparing for this type of opportunity for nearly a decade with infrastructure
upgrades, clean energy policies, royalty programs, comprehensive environmental assessments, and direct engagement
with industry, First Nations and communities.
The federal government recently approved a 20-year export license for an LNG facility being built in Kitimat, BC
- the first such license ever issued in Canada.
Kitsault Energy applauds the three levels of government for their commitment to the development of
British Columbia's LNG natural resources.
There needs to be a significant investment in all the First Nations Communities for purified drinking water,
sewer systems, healthcare, education, job training, jobs and housing. With increased royalties from energy sector,
and contribution from the Federal government, this can be accomplished during this decade. Kitsault Energy is
acutely aware of this urgent need in First Nations Communities and we are eager to participate proactively in
the revitalization of these communities and of the energy sector and its infrastructure in Canada.
Kitsault Energy is building positive relationships with First Nations Communities. These relationships
are built on trust and effective communication with the understanding that the First Nations ancestors
built a culture and economy that respects and protects the natural world.
Kitsault, BC is a purpose-built resource community with complete community infrastructure and housing for more
than 1000 residents. With nearly 350 acres of industrial and residential land, full BC Hydro service, and a
deep water port, Kitsault makes both economic and environmental sense as the preferred location to be the
Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) terminal site for the export of natural gas (LNG) from Northwest British Columbia
to Asia and other markets.
An export terminal at Kitsault for LNG operation will have the shortest natural gas pipeline for the projects
currently proposed in that region, saving 100 to 300 kilometers of pipeline at a cost savings of 1 to 3 Billion
CAD/ USD. The infrastructure in place in and around Kitsault will also allow for an accelerated start to the
creation of an LNG plant and energy export facility. Kitsault already has staff housing, utilities, land, as
well as multiple airport facilities, including an unused long runway airport at Nass Camp, one hour from
Kitsault and 75 minutes from Terrace. Kitsault can also be accessed by floatplane, helicopter, road, ship
