Project agreements with three First Nations to build a pipeline across British Colombia to a proposed LNG terminal have been reached, TransCanada says.
The Prince Rupert Gas Transmission project is proposing to design, build, own and operate a 900 kilometre natural gas pipeline to deliver natural gas from a point near Hudson’s Hope to the proposed Pacific NorthWest LNG facility at Lelu Island, off the coast of Port Edward. It will be a natural gas liquefaction and export facility.
The project agreements are part of an approach to working with First Nationals on LNG opportunities, including developing skills training, employment and involving First Nations in developing business opportunities.
These agreements are with the Doig River First Nation, Halfway River First Nation and Yekooche First Nation.
