Pacific NorthWest LNG to open storefront office Friday
The couches have been moved into location and the finishing touches are being put to the office and on Friday, Pacific Northwest LNG will be opening up it's Prince Rupert Community Office in the downtown core.
The storefront location can be found in the Capitol Mall Building on 3rd Avenue, in the spot once home to Studio Nine.
It's opening is just the latest step in setting up a North Coast presence for the LNG company that features a majority ownership stake by the Malaysian Energy giant Petronas.
The local office will be staffed by Derek Baker to start, the one time Economic Development Officer for Prince Rupert and Port Edward joined the Pacific Northwest LNG team last month and as the office opens up for business, it will be his job to provide the latest of developments on the plans for the LNG terminal to be built on Lelu Island.
The Opening day festivities run from 1 to 3 PM, with the official opening program set to get underway at 1:30 PM. The Friday session is billed as a ribbon cutting ceremony and holiday reception.
Once open for business the storefront will be open four days a week in Prince Rupert, as Tessa Gill from Pacific NorthWest LNG outlined to Council last week, the company also has plans to make its presence available in Port Edward once a week as well.
