Kitsault is located 800 km (500 miles) north of Vancouver, British
Columbia and 140 km (85 miles) north of Prince Rupert, British Columbia,
Canada. It is a purpose-built resource community with complete community
infrastructure and housing for nearly 1,000 residents. With nearly 350
acres of industrial and residential land, full B.C. Hydro service, and a
deep water port, Kitsault makes both economic and environmental sense as
the preferred location to be the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) terminal
site for the export of natural gas that is found in Northeast British
Columbia to Asia and other markets. LNG pipeline routing to Kitsault has
already been proposed by others.
Kitsault Energy (KE) is exhibiting at the World LNG Conference (LNG17)
in Houston, Texas, USA, April 16-20, 2013. The multiple phases of the
Kitsault Energy project are: Phase 1 will include a pipeline from North
East British Columbia at Dawson Creek, Canada to Kitsault, BC (East to
West), and will include a Floating LNG (FLNG) Port Facility. Phase 2
will bring a North to South pipeline from Fort Nelson to Dawson Creek,
BC. Phase 3 will include a land based LNG Plant, and LNG Export Facility
at Kitsault, BC. Phase 4 includes other plans for expansion in the
Advantages of Kitsault Energy as a Dedicated Energy Corridor
and Export Terminal
1. Kitsault is the closest location to the natural gas-rich Northeast
British Columbia, Canada to establish a Dedicated Energy Corridor and
2. Kitsault has the infrastructure with 90 houses (three bedrooms with
basement) and 150 condos (2-3 bedrooms) to house nearly 1000 residents,
along with the necessary Recreation Center, Medical Clinic, Shopping
Center, Post Office, Bank, Restaurants, Supermarket, Training Center,
etc. ready to occupy.
3. Kitsault, the entire town, has full British Columbia Hydro Power
4. Kitsault can be accessed by road, multiple airports, water,
helicopters, float planes, water taxi, etc.
5. It has Deep Water for navigation of Tankers, Barges, Ships, etc.
6. There is plenty of land for FLNG, Land Based LNG, Port, Export
Terminal, and other infrastructure.
7. It will save two to three years in project planning, construction of
pipelines and other facilities.
8. A project using Kitsault can save as much as 5 Billion USD from the
total cost of the project.
9. The pipeline can be shorter by 100 to 200 kilometers, and savings on
this alone can be 1 to 3 Billion USD in cost and 1 or more years of time.
10. Kitsault is a privately owned Fee Simple Property, with 350 acres of
land. Additionally, many thousands of acres of land are available if
11. Kitsault is located in the Regional District and is not a
Municipality. Therefore, industrial and other taxes will be lower with
potential savings of a couple of hundred million USD or more per year in
12. Kitsault used to be a Molybdenum (used for strengthening steel)
Mine, and as a result, extensive environmental assessment has been
performed for the site itself as recently as 2012.
13. The pipeline from Northeast B.C. to Kitsault will primarily be along
less populated Crown Land and some First Nation’s land with little
variation in elevation, and therefore will cause the least environmental
14. From Kitsault’s Export Terminal, the tankers, barges and ships can
enter the ocean quickly without experiencing any congestion from
navigation related to other traffic such as containers or grain loading
and unloading as in Kitimat and Prince Rupert in B.C.
15. For its energy needs, Asia will be able to rely on supplies from the
privately owned Kitsault Energy and join as an equity partner to have a
long term contract with a stable and reliable supply at reasonable
prices from Canada, a strong, vibrant and democratic country.
16. A Dedicated Energy Corridor and Export Energy Terminal at Kitsault
will have a tremendous future for other expansion plans benefitting
British Columbia, all of Canada and Asia.
Some of the companies focused on Kitimat or Price Rupert for pipeline
and LNG terminals have spent a few billion USD or more in setting up and
planning for site development, with limited options for expansion. In
addition, Kitimat and Prince Rupert are experiencing a tremendous growth
in container and grain traffic and plan to more than double this traffic
by the end of this decade, when many of the proposed LNG projects in
Kitimat and Prince Rupert will become operational. While this is very
positive for B.C. and Canada, it poses many operational and logistical
challenges and has the potential to increase the cost of LNG to the
customers and consumers.
The USA and Canada will spend nearly 15 Billion USD per month over the
next two decades in oil and gas exploration, infrastructure, production
and distribution. Significant investments are also needed in all the
First Nations Communities (FNCs) for purified drinking water, sewer
systems, healthcare, education, job training, jobs and housing. With
increased royalties from the energy sector, as well as contributions
from the Federal and Provincial governments, this can be accomplished
during this decade. We at Kitsault Energy, Best Global Talent Agency and
Best Cure Foundation are acutely aware of this urgent need in the FNCs
and are eager to participate proactively in the revitalization of the
energy sector and its infrastructure, in partnership with FNCs across
Best Global Talent Agency was established recently to meet the growing
need of various industries for a highly trained and skilled labor force,
and to provide training to First Nations Communities and others for
these high paying jobs. Best Cure Foundation was established in 2007 to
make quality healthcare and education affordable and accessible globally.

dedicated his career to cancer prevention, early detection and effective
treatment for the Total Cure. He moved to the United States in 1972 and
worked as an Engineer Physicist at Howard University Hospital in
Washington, DC, USA until 1978. Since then he has founded and invested
globally many millions of USD in medical, real estate, construction,
entertainment, and energy companies. He founded and currently is
supporting a few non-profit charitable foundations to promote quality
education and healthcare and making them affordable and accessible. He
