VANCOUVER, Canada--(BUSINESS WIRE)--KITSAULT, located 800 km (500 miles) north of Vancouver, British Columbia and 140 km (85 miles) north of Prince Rupert, British Columbia, Canada, 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 North East British Columbia to Asia and other markets. LNG pipeline routing to Kitsault has already been proposed by others.
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 float plane, helicopter, road, ship and boat. Land exists to establish a runway in Kitsault itself.
Kitsault Energy has begun contacting other engineering firms, energy producers, First Nation communities (FNC), and other interested parties including local, regional, provincial and federal government officials.
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. We at Best Cure Foundation and Kitsault Energy are acutely aware of this urgent need in FNC and are eager to participate proactively in the revitalization of the energy sector and its infrastructure and all FNC in Canada.
Kitsault Energy is attending the Fueling the Future: Global Opportunities for LNG in B.C. conference February 25-26 in Vancouver, B.C. at the Vancouver Convention Center. Our Hospitality Suite will be in the West Meeting Room 219 between 8am-7pm on Monday, February 25th and Tuesday, February 26th. Feel free to stop by for some light refreshments. Onsite contacts will be Krish Suthanthiran, Dr. Jag Uppal and David Pernarowski. Contact information is listed below.
