Pacific NorthWest LNG’s partners have announced that the project will not be moving forward.
The decision was made by the project partners following a total review of the project amid changes in market conditions.
For almost five years Pacific NorthWest LNG have been working with local governments, First Nations, residents and businesses about the proposed project and have expressed their gratitude for the support received.
The company has expressed thanks to the communities of Port Edward and Prince Rupert for welcoming Pacific NorthWest LNG and hosting local outreach offices. The company has also thanked all the communities in northwestern BC who expressed an interest in the project and took the time to work with Pacific NorthWest LNG.
Pacific NorthWest LNG has recognised the time and efforts of all the area First Nations, including the Lax Kwa’laams First Nation, Metlakatla First Nation, Kitsumkalum First Nation, Gitxaala First Nation and Gitga’at First Nation, and all of the other nations residing in the Prince Rupert area who provided feedback.
Pacific NorthWest LNG will complete outstanding business commitments by the end of September. The Prince Rupert and Port Edward offices are scheduled to be closed effective 25 August 2017.
