VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(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 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, and road. Land exists to establish a runway in Kitsault itself. Surrounding Kitsault are many thousands of acres of Crown land.
Kitsault Energy has begun contacting other engineering firms, energy producers, First Nation communities, and other interested parties including local, regional, provincial and federal government officials.
Kitsault Energy is exhibiting at the World LNG Fuels Conference January 21–23 in Houston, Texas at the George R. Brown Convention Center, booth number 204. In addition, Kitsault Energy will be exhibiting at British Columbia’s first international LNG Conference at the Vancouver Convention Centre, on February 25–26, 2013.
