Liquefied Natural Gas Limited signed a workforce deal with the Nova Scotia Construction Labour Relations Association (CLRA) and Cape Breton Building and Construction Trades for the proposed Bear Head LNG facility in Nova Scotia.
The MOA outlines a path forward for both parties to establish terms and conditions of employment for trade workers represented by unions working on the Bear Head site at the Strait of Canso in Richmond County.
John Baguley, CEO for Bear Head LNG noted the local labor force will be deployed on “what will be the largest industrial construction project in Atlantic Canada.”
Bear Head LNG is proposing to build an LNG export facility on the naturally deep waters of the Strait of Canso in Point Tupper, Richmond County, Nova Scotia.
The proposed facility will comprise an initial development of an 8 – 10 million tonne per annum facility, with the capacity and approvals for further expansion.
“Bear Head LNG’s focus is to provide overseas markets, primarily Europe and Western Asia, with access to North America’s natural gas resources based on competitive economics,” Baguley noted.
