[QUOTE=rshrew;192194]There has been a ton of money thrown into Kittamat for the LNG port is that still happening?[/QUOTE]
According to stories that came out in July the answer to this question from the supermajors was; “wait and see what the gas prices do, we’ll talk again at the end of the year.” So far, we haven’t heard anything yet. The boom that was sourcing the gas for that proposed facility has gone bust, just like everywhere else.
This page contains a clip from the Haisla cheif talking to CBC Radio, where he explains why they support the port, pipeline, and fracking in NE BC.
His points are worth hearing. He mentions the seldom-heard truth that not all fracking is irresponable and damaging. Politically-confused-science aside, the future of the port in Kitimat will come down to the strength of the gas market. Far as I can tell all the permits are in place, and Premier Clark would really like it to happen, so its on the majors.
