Huu‐ay‐aht First Nations said it was notified by Steelhead LNG that it has ceased current project work on the Kwispaa LNG project.

Vancouver-based Steelhead LNG, in cooperation with First Nations, lead the project including a liquefied natural gas export facility located at Sarita Bay, 10 kilometers northeast of Bamfield on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

The project has previously secured National Energy Board (NEB) approval to export up to 24 million tons of LNG for a period of 25 years.

The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency started a federal environmental assessment for the Kwispaa LNG export project in December.

However, according to the letter, Steelhead LNG decided to pull the plug on the project.

“We are deeply disappointed, and over the coming weeks your government will evaluate the implications of this decision by Steelhead LNG, identify all go‐forward options, and assess how best to advance the interests of our citizens,” the Huu‐ay‐aht First Nations said in an open letter to its citizens.

The letter did not unveil the reason Steelhead LNG ceased the project work.
