Blog Watching, week ending August 2, 2015

LNG and Oil topics topped our review of the top five items this week, with word of export approval granted to a group known as ORCA LNG to ship product out of a terminal proposed for Prince Rupert.

That item was followed this week by the latest developments for a proposed Oil Refinery and Shipment Terminal for the Prince Rupert area, as Pacific Future Energy announced a partnership to move their development further ahead.

Infrastructure proved a popular topic this week as well, our item on BC Transportation Minister Todd Stone's tour of the Northwest attracted a fairly healthy audience, as did our notes on the Prince Rupert stop of his tour, which provided a bit over 4 million dollars towards the City's water supply line project.

The Banks Island pollution spill and our look at how it seemed to slip under the radar  for much of the month for North Coast MLA Jennifer Rice also pulled in respectable numbers this week.

When it comes to the most read item of the week, it's once again an item from the bulging LNG files of the North Coast, with some movement for yet one more proposed terminal in the region.
