North Coast residents with an interest on LNG developments will be clicking onto the Vancouver Sun website tonight at 9 PM, with the province's leading newspaper promising what they call explosive revelations about Petronas, the parent company of Pacific NorthWest LNG which is looking to build an LNG terminal at Lelu Island on the North Coast.

Co-written by reporters Peter O'Neil and Gordon Hoekstra, the story will reportedly make use of a 732 page internal audit that the Sun obtained, a document that the Sun notes will highlight a number of structural and safety issues when it comes to the oil and gas platforms that the company operates on the Malaysian coast.

The preview notes that the Sun will also report on the reaction to their story from Petronas, as well as from the British Columbia Government, an environmental group, two technical experts and a political analyst who specializes in Malaysian politics.

The start of the two part series will be posted to the Vancouver Sun website at 9 PM tonight, with the print run to follow on Friday and Saturday.
