Pacific NorthWest LNG is an active member in the communities of Port Edward and Prince Rupert. Our comprehensive community consultation prior to submitting the project’s environmental assessment application has resulted in several significant changes to the facility design thanks to feedback provided by residents, First Nations and stakeholders. We will continue to work with the community, and have set up a new office in Prince Rupert to provide information about the project and provide a convenient location to ask any questions you might have to our local staff. A project office in Port Edward is currently being developed and expected in open in the coming months. In the meantime, a member of our team will be available on Wednesdays at the District of Port Edward from 1pm to 4pm to discuss the project with members of the community.
If constructed, Pacific NorthWest LNG would provide more than $1 billion a year in total new tax revenue for local, provincial and federal governments.
