TransCanada’s Prince Rupert Gas Transmission project (PRGT) on Tuesday informed it has signed project agreement with 12 hereditary chiefs of the Gitxsan Nation.

The hereditary chiefs each represent a Wilp (house group) whose territory is affected by the project route, the company’s statement reads, adding that the agreement outlines economic and employment benefits as well as other commitments that will be provided for as long as the project is in service.

PRGT has so far executed 13 project agreements with First Nations in B.C. which include Blueberry River First Nations, Doig River, Gitanyow, Halfway River, Kitselas First Nation, Lake Babine Nation, McLeod Lake Indian Band, Metlakatla First Nation, Nisga’a Lisims Government, Takla Lake First Nation, Tl’azt’en Nation and Yekooche First Nation.

Prince Rupert Gas Transmission is proposing to construct and operate a 900-kilometer natural gas pipeline to deliver natural gas from a point near Hudson’s Hope to the proposed Pacific NorthWest LNG facility at Lelu Island, off the coast of Port Edward, near Prince Rupert.
