Ksi Lisims LNG is a proposed floating liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility located on a site owned by the Nisga’a Nation near the community of Gingolx in British Columbia.
The project will have a capacity of 12 million tonnes of LNG per year, destined for markets in the Pacific basin, primarily in Asia where demand for cleaner fuels continues to grow.
The Project is designed from the ground up to set a new environmental performance standard, including a proposed floating design which significantly reduces land and shoreline disturbance. In addition, the facility will have one of the lowest carbon intensities of any large-scale LNG export project in the world, utilizing several technologies to reduce carbon emissions, including using renewable hydropower from the BC grid.
Together with pipeline construction and upstream development anticipated over the project life, Ksi Lisims LNG will generate more than $50 billion in economic activity, creating thousands of jobs in British Columbia, Alberta and across Canada. For Indigenous Nations, Ksi Lisims LNG will create education, training, employment, contracting and social and cultural investment opportunities, keeping people on their land and deeply connected to culture.
Ksi Lisims LNG is a unique project by three parties that each bring a unique perspective, background, capabilities, and experience to the table to create a successful project. Rockies LNG is bringing natural gas supply and an appetite for access to new markets. Western LNG is bringing expertise in financing, engineering, contracting and operating LNG facilities. And the Nisga’a Nation is bringing a world-class site along with knowledge of the coastal environmental, social, and cultural heritage from thousands of years of history in the Nass.
