Nisga’a and partners plan huge floating LNG export project in Canada

The Nisga’a Nation and partners have revealed plans to export up to 12 million tonnes per year from a floating LNG project in Canada’s British Columbia.

The other two partners include Houston-based Western LNG and Rockies LNG, a limited partnership comprised of Canadian natural gas producers.

The partners said on Monday in a statement they have filed the initial project description for the development named Ksi Lisims LNG with the local and state governments.

Ksi Lisims LNG, meaning “from the Nass River” in the Nisga’a language, would be located at Wil Milit on the northern tip of Pearse Island near the Nisga’a village of Gingolx.

Moreover, the project would receive about 1.7 to 2.0 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day.

It would use renewable BC hydropower in combination with strong monitoring and measurement, energy efficiency, purchase of carbon offsets but also potential carbon capture and storage.

In addition, Ksi Lisims LNG plans to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions associated with the facility within 3 years of start-up, the statement said.

Total direct and indirect economic impact related to the Ksi Lisims LNG facility, infrastructure and upstream activities could reach about C$55 billion ($43.1 billion), according to the partners.

The size of the development is similar to the Shell-led LNG Canada project currently under construction in Kitimat, British Columbia. Also, Canada’s Pembina Pipeline and the Haisla Nation recently said they were joining forces on a proposed floating LNG export facility in Kitimat as well.

Commercial operations at Ksi Lisims LNG could start in late 2027 or 2028 while the fuel would go to markets in the Pacific basin, primarily in Asia, the partners said.
