Pacific NorthWest LNG is a proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) liquefaction and export facility on Lelu Island within the District of Port Edward on land administered by the Port of Prince Rupert. The facility would liquefy and export natural gas produced by Progress Energy Canada Ltd. in northeastern BC. It would be a $9 billion to $11 billion investment.
Pacific NorthWest LNG will generate new economic and social benefits for the local community, BC and Canada in an environmentally safe and sustainable manner. For example, up to 3,500 jobs will be created at the peak of construction and 200 to 300 operational jobs.
