HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kitsault Energy announces a multi phase plan for a dedicated Energy Corridor, LNG Terminal and Energy Export Facility at Kitsault Resort, B.C., Canada.
Phase 1 will include a pipeline from North East British Columbia at Dawson Creek, Canada to Kitsault, BC (East to West), and will include a Floating LNG (FLNG) Port Facility. Phase 2 will bring a North to South pipeline from Fort Nelson to Dawson Creek, BC. Phase 3 will include a land based LNG Plant, and LNG Export Facility at Kitsault, BC.
There will be other phases of the energy project that will be added based on future needs and plans. The Kitsault Energy team will also be exhibiting at the World LNG Conference in Houston, Texas, April 16-19, 2013.
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 1,000 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 access to multiple airport facilities, including an unused long runway for aircraft at Nass Camp, one hour from Kitsault and 75 minutes from Terrace. Surrounding Kitsault there are many thousands of acres of land available for further development. Kitsault can also be accessed by float plane, helicopter, road and water. Land exists to establish a runway for aircraft in Kitsault itself.
