The Nisga’a Nation is partnering with a group of Western Canadian natural gas producers called Rockies LNG Partners and a Texas-based energy company called Western LNG to develop a new liquified natural gas (LNG) export facility. The project, called Ksi Lisims LNG, would include a pipeline to transport natural gas from the northeast corner of the province to a floating liquefaction facility would be located near the village of Gingolx, a coastal community about 80 kilometres north of Prince Rupert. The project will be capable of producing 12 million tonnes of LNG per year and generate 4,000 construction jobs. Ownership of Ksi Lisims LNG is still being determined as the proponents continue to finalize commercial agreements and negotiations are underway with two companies to build a pipeline. The project proponents are scheduled to announce the project on Monday, and will begin applying for the necessary government permits and start formal talks with communities in the region.
