Steelhead LNG and the Huu-ay-aht First Nations are jointly developing the proposed Sarita LNG Project, located at Sarita Bay on Vancouver Island. The proposed Project is an energy project that would take natural gas from northeastern BC and Alberta and turn it into LNG at an LNG processing plant at Sarita Bay. The proposed project site is located on approximately 330-hectares of Huu-ay-aht owned land at Sarita Bay, about 10 km north of Bamfield. A specific route for the pipeline has not yet been selected.
The 24 million tons/year
Steelhead LNG’s application for a license to export LNG is currently being reviewed by the federal government’s National Energy Board. A final investment decision on the project is expected in 2018 with up to 4,000 jobs being created during the construction phase and 3-400 full-time jobs when the plant is operational.
On August 20, 2015, Steelhead LNG Corp. and the Malahat Nation announced the successful completion of a Mutual Benefits Agreement and Long-Term Lease supporting the development of Malahat LNG, a liquified natural gas project that would include floating liquifaction facilities moored to the shoreline and supporting land-based facilities. Malahat LNG will be situated on Malahat Nation-owned land, formerly known as Bamberton.
