Background

Nisga'a LNG Terminal is a proposed LNG terminal in British Columbia, Canada.[1]

"The Nisga’a Nation has offered Nation-owned land as potential LNG project development sites, and it is also considering developing its own LNG project. The still-speculative Nisga’a LNG would be located on the Portland Inlet waterway, near the Nass River and would receive gas from the proposed Prince Rupert Gas Transmission pipeline. The pipeline would traverse almost 100 kilometers of Nisga’a lands, so it would be the most convenient feeder for the Nation’s own LNG project. The project backers have yet to apply for an NEB export license, and the quantity they hope to export is unknown. Though the Nation began seeking investors in 2014, thus far it has not attracted any," according to the Sightline Institute's 2018 report, "Update: Mapping BC’s LNG Proposals."[2]

There have been no development updates since 2015, and the project is presumed to be cancelled.
