Project

Project Overview

Ksi Lisims LNG, pronounced as s'lisims, means “from the Nass River” in the Nisga’a language, is a proposed 12-million-tonne-per-year liquefied natural gas (LNG) project at Wil Milit, north of Prince Rupert, BC near the Nisga’a village of Gingolx.  

Ksi Lisims LNG’s governance structure provides each project proponent – the Nisga’a Nation, Rockies LNG and Western LNG – with meaningful input into project development, management and operations, ensuring it is designed and operated in a manner consistent with the Nisga’a Nation’s commitment to stewardship of the land and its people.

Wil Milit

Ksi Lisims LNG will be located at Wil Milit, approximately 15 kilometers east of Gingolx, on treaty land owned in fee simple by the Nisga’a Nation. The proposed site consists of undeveloped, but previously logged, land in close proximity to existing shipping routes.

Largest Net Zero LNG Export Facility in theWorld

Ksi Lisims LNG plans to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions associated with the LNG facility within 3 years of start up and will provide energy markets in Asia with low carbon, reliable energy that helps meet growing energy needs and supports continued growth in intermittent renewables such as wind and solar.

Ksi Lisims LNG’s pathway to net zero includes the use of renewable power in combination with strong monitoring and measurement, energy efficiency, purchase of carbon offsets and potential carbon sequestration and storage.

Environmental Assessment

Information related to KsiLisims LNG’s Initial Project Description and environmental assessment process available on the BC Environmental Assessment Office’s web site.

Jobs and Economic Benefits

Ksi Lisims LNG will generate significant social and economic benefits, including public revenues, jobs, training and businesses opportunities for Indigenous Nations and other communities in the region. Total direct and indirect economic impact related to the Ksi Lisims facility, infrastructure and upstream activities is estimated at approximately $55 billion.

Project Schedule

Ksi Lisims LNG is in the early planning stages with environmental assessment work, Indigenous and community engagement, and preliminary engineering currently underway.

With regulatory approvals and final investment decisions by the project partners, construction could begin in 2024 with the site operational in late 2027 or 2028.
