CAPP statement on the sale of the Prince Rupert Gas Transmission Project to the Nisga’a Nation and Western LNG

Mar 14, 2024 (Calgary, Alberta) 

“Additional natural gas corridors are integral to unlocking Canada’s potential as a global supplier of responsibly produced liquefied natural gas (LNG). The sale of the Prince Rupert Gas Transmission Project to the Nisga’a Nation and Western LNG is another example of the integral role Indigenous leadership is playing in advancing Canada’s emerging LNG export industry and a positive step forward, not just for the Ksi Lisims LNG project but also in positioning British Columbia’s west coast one of the most significant energy export hubs in the world.”

-Lisa Baiton, CAPP President & CEO
