Description

A net-zero emission hydrogen plant located on the Kerry Lake Indian Reserve, 90 kilometers north of Prince George.

In October 2023, a formal agreement was reached between the province and the McLeod Lake Indian Band to build the plant on the Kerry Lake Indian Reserve, 90 kilometers north of Prince George.

The MoU lays the groundwork for Mitsubishi Power to create the Tse’khene energy hub, a CAD 7 billion project producing green hydrogen and blue hydrogen.

Construction of the hydrogen production facility and a straddle plant to extract high-value natural gas liquids is expected to begin in May 2024 with an expected completion date in 2026.

Part of the hydrogen will be converted to liquid ammonia and shipped on an existing rail line near the proposed plant to the expanded port facility in Prince Rupert for export to Asian markets.

The proposed location of the project is two kilometers from a BC Hydro transmission line and water needed for the plant would be drawn from the Crooked River. It’s also close to the Coastal GasLink LNG pipeline, which will be used to feed the straddle plant.

The McLeod Lake band is working with Pacific Natural Gas to reactivate its compressor station near Summit Lake and with Pembina Pipeline Corporation to create the pipeline needed for the project.
