We congratulate all provincial MLAs on their election. We believe our proposed Sarita LNG and Malahat LNG projects will provide significant benefits for local communities, British Columbians and Canadians.

As we move forward, we will continue to engage with the BC government and local MLAs to demonstrate the benefits of our projects and address feedback on our proposals.

VANCOUVER, BC (March 26, 2017) – Huu-ay-aht First Nations citizens made history, becoming the first British Columbia Nation to approve a co-management development arrangement for a liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility.

On March 25, Huu-ay-aht citizens voted 70 per cent in support for the proposed Sarita LNG Project with Steelhead LNG. The proposed LNG facility, which also received unanimous support of Huu-ay-aht’s Ḥaw̓iiḥ Council (Hereditary Chiefs) and elected Executive Council, could be an economic game changer for the Nation of 750 people.

Vancouver, BC (September 19, 2016) – A new development agreement announced today between Steelhead LNG and Seven Generations Energy Ltd. sets the stage for engaging Aboriginal groups and communities as the two companies explore the development of new midstream infrastructure to support Steelhead LNG’s proposed natural gas liquefaction and export projects on Vancouver Island.

The arrangement, through which Seven Generations has also acquired a minority interest in Steelhead LNG, is expected to provide potential new markets for Seven Generations’ production as well as increased certainty of natural gas supply for Steelhead LNG.   (read more…)

Laura Kane, The Canadian Press  VIA Vancouver Sun

Aboriginal consultation must be the top priority for liquefied natural gas proponents in Canada, say a company and First Nation that have partnered to build a LNG facility on Vancouver Island.

Steelhead LNG president Victor Ojeda and Malahat Nation CEO Renee Racette spoke to the Canada LNG Export conference in Vancouver on Wednesday about minimizing the risk of costly delays through collaboration.

Ojeda told a crowd of engineers and businesspeople that the company began consulting with the Malahat well before entering the regulatory process or advanced design phase.

Re: “Put LNG terminals far from people,” letter, March 25.

While we appreciate the opinions expressed in the letter, it is important to separate opinion from fact.

Natural gas is a safe and versatile energy source that is used every day here on Vancouver Island. Cooling it into a liquid — or LNG — is one of the safest ways to store and transport natural gas abroad to countries that currently rely on energy sources such as coal. In particular, LNG is safe because it is non-toxic, non-corrosive and non-explosive.

As the discussion about our proposed liquefied natural gas project takes shape, we’re seeing critics quoted who continue to make inaccurate claims about the project and about LNG itself.

All of us at Steelhead LNG believe in having a broad and energetic community conversation about our proposed project, and we’re certainly prepared to be challenged by those who have questions or concerns. However, we really hope it will be a discussion based on facts and science, and not on myths and misconceptions.

In the interest of getting it right, I’d like to provide some important details about our proposed Malahat LNG project on the shoreline of the Malahat Nation-owned Bamberton industrial lands.
