Enbridge purchases land at Grassy Point

Enbridge Inc. has increased its presence on the North Coast with a significant purchase of land at Grassy Point.

Documents obtained by the Northern View indicate that Enbridge Northern Gateway Western Access Inc. became the registered owner of 159 acres, or just more than 64 hectares, of land, on Dec. 19, 2013.

Enbridge Inc. spokesperson Ivan Giesbrecht confirmed the purchase and said the company already has plans in place for the site.

“As a normal course of business for a pipeline company, Enbridge is continually exploring future development opportunities. As such, I can confirm that Enbridge recently purchased a parcel of land at Grassy Point near Prince Rupert in pursuit of possible LNG business opportunities,” said Giesbrecht, noting the purchase is not associated with the company’s other dealings in the area.

“This land purchase is unrelated to the proposed Northern Gateway Pipeline project.”

The documents indicate the sale price for the land was $20 million paid to two former property owners. The land in question sits adjacent to the land the government sold to Aurora LNG and Woodside LNG in November and January, respectively.
