PGRT signs project agreement with Blueberry River First Nations

TransCanada informed that its Prince Rupert Gas Transmission project has signed a project agreement with the Blueberry River First Nations.

The agreement outlines financial and other benefits and commitments that will be provided for as long as the project is in service, including access to employment and contracts and initial and annual payments for the life of the project, Trans Canada said in a statement.

Along the pipeline route, PRGT has also signed project agreements with Doig River, Halfway River and Yekooche First Nations, Gitanyow First Nation, Kitselas First Nation, Lake Babine Nation, Metlakatla First Nation and Nisga’a Lisims Government.

Prince Rupert Gas Transmission is proposing to construct and operate a 900-kilometre 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.
