OTTAWA, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--KITSAULT, located 500 miles (800 km) north of Vancouver, British Columbia and 85 miles (140 km) 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 land of industrial land, full BC Hydro service, and a deep water port, Kitsault makes both economic and environmental sense as the preferred location to be the LNG terminal site for the export of natural gas from North East British Columbia to Asia and other markets.

The well maintained Kitsault town site features over 90 occupant-ready family homes, and approximately 150 two and three and 3 bedroom condominium units. The community facilities include a complete community complex with an aquatic centre, community recreation rooms, an indoor arena for basketball, a curling ring and racquetball courts and much more. The town’s well maintained amenities include restaurant facilities, a shopping center, a post office, a bank, a supermarket, a medical centre, as well as numerous outdoor amenities.
Kitsault Energy is in the process of consulting First Nations communities about training, education and employment opportunities. The Kitsault LNG terminal will result in job training and permanent well-paying careers for First Nations’ youth.
Kitsault Energy has also begun the process of consulting with LNG energy partners, as well as local, provincial and federal governments.
