Kitsault LNG Terminal is a proposed LNG terminal in British Columbia, Canada.
"Kitsault Energy would be located at the ghost town Kitsault, 85 miles north of Prince Rupert. The project backer is self-made millionaire and philanthropist Krishnan Suthanthiran, who purchased the former mining town for about $6 million in 2005. Kitsault is at the head of Alice Arm, the eastern arm of Observatory Inlet. The project’s export license application pondered an approximately 600-kilometer pipeline—most likely the backer hopes to enter a contract with either the proposed Prince Rupert Gas Transmission Project or the proposed Westcoast Connector Gas Transmission Project. Kitsault Energy’s 20-million-metric-ton-per-year LNG project is still speculative, and there have been no major developments of late," according to the Sightline Institute's 2018 report, "Update: Mapping BC’s LNG Proposals."
There have been no development updates since 2005, and the project is reported to be cancelled.
