FORT NELSON, B.C. – Cryopeak LNG Solutions has announced its new LNG production facility in Fort Nelson is now in operation.

This facility will help bring lower cost and sustainable fuel to Northern Canada, and Alaska, says Cryopeak in a release Monday.

Phase one of the production capacity is 27,000 liquefied natural gas (LNG) gallons per day, and the plan can hold around 100,000 gallons per day with its current permit.

Calum McClure, CEO of Cryopeak, says, “We are excited to open this new production facility in Fort Nelson. We appreciate the support in realizing this project from the Fort Nelson First Nations and the community of Fort Nelson. We look forward to delivering natural gas to our remote customers lowering energy costs and reducing carbon emissions.” 

The new facility in Fort Nelson is the most northern plant in Canada and will provide LNG to northern communities and remote mines, and other industrial applications for heat and power.

The location and efficiency of this new facility will result in the lowest available cost of supply for off-grid communities and industrial customers.

Mayor of Northern Rockies Regional Municipality Gary Foster says, “The Northern Rockies is pleased to welcome K2LNG as they open their brand new Tamaska LNG plant near Fort Nelson. Tamaska is a perfect fit for the north, establishing Fort Nelson as a transportation hub and reducing the carbon footprint of remote communities.”
