Samsung Heavy Industries and Black & Veatch have been awarded a contract to develop the Ksi Lisims LNG project off the coast of British Columbia. The project, supported by Western LNG, the Nisga’a Nation indigenous group, and Rockies LNG, aims to achieve net-zero carbon emissions. The companies will conduct front-end engineering and design (FEED) work for the project, which is expected to produce and export 12 million tonnes per annum of LNG with one of the world’s lowest unit carbon emissions rates. Ksi Lisims LNG will be connected to B.C’s renewable hydroelectric grid and incorporate design features that reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 90% compared to conventional LNG facilities. The project plans to achieve net-zero emissions by 2030, utilizing offsets. Commercial operations are projected to commence in 2028, and the land-based facilities will be located on Nisga’a Nation-controlled land. The project is seen as a significant opportunity for economic prosperity and a positive future for the Nisga’a Nation.
