Canada plans floating LNG facility off Vancouver Island

ADVERTISEMENT

Steelhead LNG has signed an agreement and lease with the Malahat Nation to build Malahat LNG, a liquid national gas facility, on the shore land formerly known as Bamberton, about 8km south of Mill Bay on Vancouver Island, Canada.

The proposed facility would include floating liquefaction facilities moored to the shoreline and supporting land-based infrastructure.

The land for the project has hosted a cement manufacturing facility for more than 100 years and is currently being used as a rock quarry, for off-loading industrial equipment and materials, and other industrial activities. It is part of a 525-hectare parcel of land that the Malahat recently acquired, tripling the size of its Nation. The transaction is one of the largest Aboriginal land purchases in British Columbia’s history.

The Malahat Nation is a 319-member nation on the western shore of Saanich Inlet, south of Mill Bay. It is part of the Te’mexw Treaty Association, which in April signed an agreement with Canada and British Columbia that will lead to self-government.
