Pieridae Energy says that it has ratified a benefits agreement for its proposed Goldboro LNG project with the Nova Scotia Mi’kmaq Chiefs.
The agreement establishes the framework under which the Mi’kmaq of Nova Scotia will benefit economically from the development, construction and operation of the project, the company said.
“A memorandum of understanding signed in 2013 originally outlined the relationship between Pieridae and the Mi’kmaq in Nova Scotia and this new benefits agreement underscores Pieridae’s commitment to ongoing engagement and relationship building with the First Nations communities in Nova Scotia,” the company said.
