KWISPAA LNG PROJECT INFORMATION
Steelhead LNG and Huu-ay-aht First Nations are co-managing the development of the proposed Kwispaa LNG project (formerly Sarita LNG). The liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility will be located at Sarita Bay on Vancouver Island. On March 25, 2017, Huu-ay-aht citizens voted to approve the proposed project, which also has the unanimous support of Huu-ay-aht elected and hereditary leaders. Kwispaa LNG is the only Canadian liquefied natural gas (LNG) project being developed through a co-management relationship between industry (Steelhead LNG) and First Nations (Huu-ay-aht First Nations).

LOCATION:
Sarita Bay (in the Alberni Inlet) on land owned by Huu-ay-aht First Nations (known to Huu-ay-aht people as “Kwispaa”).

CAPACITY:

Phase 1: ~ 12 mtpa (1.9 bcf/d); Phase 2: expandable to 24 mtpa (NEB-approved export licenses)

TECHNOLOGY:

Jetty-moored liquefaction facilities (At-Shore LNG™)

POWER SOLUTION:

Electric-drive design with high-efficiency power station – total facility emissions of less than 0.16 C02e per tonne of LNG.

GAS SUPPLY:
Natural gas for the proposed project would come from northeastern BC and/or Alberta. Canada’s natural gas reserves are expected to meet the country’s projected domestic and export needs for at least the next 100 years. [1]

PIPELINE ROUTE:
Chetwynd (Stn 2) to Williams Lake area, southwest to Powell River, across the Strait of Georgia, terminating at Kwispaa LNG. The pipeline solution will parallel existing rights-of-way for approximately 50% of the route. A specific route has not yet been selected and is subject to ongoing community and First Nations consultation.

CAPITAL COST:
Estimated C$18 billion, including pipeline costs.

EXPORT LICENSE:
Steelhead LNG’s application for a license to export liquefied natural gas is currently being reviewed by the federal government’s National Energy Board (NEB).
