Remote communities in Canada to benefit from KATE and Ferus LNG partnership
Published by Will Owen,
KATE Energy Holdings Inc. has entered into a long-term master services agreement with Ferus Natural Gas Fuels Inc. (Ferus NGF) to secure LNG from the Dawson Creek LNG facility under KATE Energy’s LNG off-take agreement.
This agreement will provide both KATE Energy and Ferus NGF clients, including Yukon Energy Corp., a cost-effective LNG fuel solution delivered from Canada’s northernmost LNG facility.
Ferus NGF and Yukon Energy recently entered into a four-year contract for the supply and delivery of LNG for power generation in Whitehorse, Yukon. In effect since 1 January 2020, the contract was the result of a competitive tender process in the fall of 2019 that saw KATE Energy and Ferus NGF enter a ‘co-bid’, led by Ferus NGF.
“We believe this four-year agreement with Yukon Energy validates the ever-increasing need for remote communities and industrial operations to replace diesel and other distillates as power and heating fuels,” says Thomas Elwell, CEO of KATE Energy.
“The collaboration between KATE Energy and Ferus NGF showcases how uniquely positioned, Western Canadian energy companies can work together to service the ongoing needs of larger communities in an efficient and effective manner,” says Elwell. “This is an important step toward providing a cleaner, more cost-effective power and heating solution to communities and industrial operations in remote Canada for years to come. As an early adopter, Yukon Energy proves that domestically distributed LNG and power generation can be a successful and sustainable model to power the North.”
