Steelhead LNG and the Huu-ay-aht First Nations are jointly developing the proposed Sarita LNG Project, located at Sarita Bay on Vancouver Island. The proposed Project is a natural gas liquefaction and export facility located on Huu-ay-aht First Nations-owned land at Sarita Bay. In November 2014, Huu-ay-aht First Nations’ citizens voted in favour of continuing to explore the proposed Project with Steelhead LNG. Long term relationship agreements are under negotiation. The proposed Sarita LNG Project is in the preliminary engineering and conceptual design stage.
The proposed Project is located on approximately 330-hectares of Huu-ay-aht First Nations-owned land at Sarita Bay, about 10 km north of Bamfield, on Vancouver Island.
The natural gas for the proposed Project would be sourced from northeastern British Columbia and northwestern Alberta. It’s the same clean-burning natural gas used every day in Canadian homes for heating and cooking. Canada’s natural gas reserves are expected to meet the country’s projected domestic and export needs for at least the next 100 years. 
The proposed Project could use a combination of existing and new pipelines and right-of-ways to transport the gas from northeastern BC and northwestern Alberta to Sarita Bay, supporting significant employment and other economic opportunities in those regions.
The National Energy Board (NEB) granted Steelhead LNG four export licenses (up to 24 million tonnes per annum) to export liquefied natural gas for 25 years. NEB export licenses are granted based purely on supply and demand of natural gas in Canada to ensure there are adequate reserves of natural gas to meet domestic needs for many years to come.
