The Northern View reported that the Port Edward council unanimously voiced their support for LNG terminals on the North Coast after their visit earlier this month to Malaysia where they saw a terminal first-hand, along with Petronas world headquarters and the training facility for those in the industry.
“I would feel very comfortable with an LNG terminal on Lelu Island or Ridley Island. I would know there would be no danger to our lifestyle, and there was no noise and no smell … it’s not an offensive industry, it’s very clean.”
— Coun. Murray Kristoff, a Port Edward councillor who gave his thoughts on the council’s trip.
“Everything is done according to a plan. Nothing is left to chance and it is all done to the highest standard possible … I haven’t got any concerns.”
— Coun. Knut Bjorndal, a Port Edward councillor who travelled to Malaysia with the council.
