Kitimat LNG Plant: The Future of British Columbia

The proposed Kitimat LNG Project is a 50/50 joint venture between Chevron Canada Limited (Chevron) and Woodside Energy International (Canada) Limited (Woodside). The Chevron-operated project comprises upstream resource assets in the Liard and Horn River Basins in northeast B.C.; the 471-km Pacific Trail Pipeline (PTP); and a natural gas liquefaction facility at Bish Cove near Kitimat. The Kitimat LNG Plant includes up to three LNG trains totalling 18 million tonnes per annum (6.0 MTPA/train), and is an all-electric plant powered by clean, renewable hydroelectricity from BC Hydro. But as this pipeline will provide thousands of jobs to British Columbians, there has been pushback from Hereditary Chiefs.

Harjinder Thind chats with Global BC’s legislative chief Keith Baldrey about this issue, and what can be the impacts in case the construction stops.
