A conglomerate of seven Chinese companies and one Canadian company is looking to build miniature LNG facilities in Fort Nelson.

Kai Tian Energy Group (KT Energy) has outlined preliminary plans for the facilities on its website, however, would not elaborate on its plans when contacted Wednesday.

"We don't have anything definite to be announced to the public for now," said a woman who answered the telephone at KT Energy Vancouver office, and who declined to give her name.

"When time is appropriate we will contact you and give some information."

On its website, KT Energy says it plans to build several "mini LNG modular plants" to meet Canadian domestic demand.

The first plant is proposed for Fort Nelson, the company states, with an initial production of 20,000 gallons per day in its first phase. That would increase to 60,000 gallons per day in its second phase, the company states.

"We have the ability to build Mini LNG Modular Plants close to customers to meet their specific applications, which will significantly reduce costs and ensure a stable supply of LNG," the company says, adding "it provides more economic and environmental friendly energy choice to the customers in Northern B.C., Yukon and Northwest Territories.

The company's website states that its first production is expected to come by the end of the year.

A listing on the website shows KT Energy is made up of seven Chinese companies and another one established last year in Vancouver.

Calls to the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office seeking information about whether the company is in any stage of the regulatory process for the project were not returned as of press time Wednesday.
