On July 8th Steelhead LNG Corp. and the Huu-ay-aht First Nations (HFN) proudly announced an Opportunity Development Agreement that will see both parties work together to explore developing a liquefied natural gas (LNG) project on HFN-owned land at Sarita Bay, approximately 10 km north of Anacla at the southern end of Alberni Inlet on Vancouver Island.
The project represents a unique approach and working relationship between a BC-based energy company and a First Nation that will see both parties work together as equal and active partners from the earliest stage of the proposed project. Below is information about the partnership and the proposed project. The news release that accompanied our announcement in Port Alberni on July 8th is available here.
In the months ahead, we will build an additional website dedicated to this proposed project. The website will provide more information about the project, project partners, and a wide range of issues related to the LNG industry. The website will also be used to: collect feedback; provide the public, stakeholders and Huu-ay-aht citizens with opportunities to ask questions on any issue; and provide information about upcoming community engagement activities and events.
We look forward to addressing the questions and concerns of the public, neighbouring First Nations, and especially Huu-ay-aht citizens.
