“We are very pleased to have concluded this project agreement with Gitanyow First Nation,” writes president of Prince Rupert Gas Transmission Dean Patry.

Pipeline Project Agreements are part of an approach to work with First Nations on LNG opportunities – including the development of skills training and business opportunities.

“This agreement is an important milestone for us and reflects our commitment to engage with First Nations in a meaningful way,” Patry goes on to write. “We strongly believe that ongoing collaboration is the only way to build and keep a positive relationship as we move this project forward.”

The Prince Rupert Gas Transmission is a proposal to build and operate a 900 km natural gas pipeline to act as a delivery system from a point near Hudson’s Hope to the proposed Pacific NorthWest LNG facility at Lelu Island off the coast of Port Edward – near Prince Rupert.
