Pacific NorthWest LNG says it’ll continue to hold discussions with First Nations.
In an e-mailed statement, Michael Culbert, President of Pacific NorthWest LNG, says that PNW recognizes the ecological importance of Flora Bank.
He says through open consultations with Tsimshian First Nations, they have redesigned their facilities to avoid damaging the ecologically important fish habitats.
The statement goes on to say that ongoing 3D modelling submitted to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency last week using included data from the Lax Kw’alaams Skeena Fisheries Commission showed the project wouldn’t cause significant adverse effects to fish and fish habitat around Lelu Island.
PNW LNG says they will continue to hold open discussions with all Tsimshian leaders and community members.
The statement points out that the BC environmental review was approved last year, and the federal review is well underway.
It also says Petronas will continue to assess the viability of the project from a fiscal and regulatory perspective.
