Fortescue has taken a major step towards establishing a green energy hub in Prince George, British Columbia, through the submittal of an Initial Project Description (IPD) and Early Engagement Plan to initiate the environmental assessment process with the Province of British Columbia through the Environmental Assessment Office.
This project marks the first domestic green hydrogen supply chain, which will help meet British Columbia’s ambitious climate targets while supporting regional economic diversification, jobs, and training opportunities.
The Coyote Hydrogen Project is proposing the construction of a large-scale green hydrogen and green ammonia production facility. The green ammonia and green hydrogen produced from potential 1000 MW facility could be exported or used domestically to reduce fossil fuel and help meet climate targets in BC, Canada, and globally.
The Project would be situated at the Willow Cale Industrial Park in Prince George on the unceded traditional territory of the Lheidli T’enneh First Nation.
In October 2021, the Lheidli T’enneh First Nation and Fortescue signed a Memorandum of Understanding and as part of this, the parties are pleased to announce they are negotiating a fulsome Impact and Benefits Agreement.
Green hydrogen is produced through electrolysis of water and powered by renewable energy from the existing BC Hydro grid.
Green ammonia is produced by combining nitrogen from the air with the green hydrogen. This is done for easier and safer storage and transportation of the green energy.

As mentioned above, the Coyote Hydrogen Project has initiated the environmental assessment approval process with the Province of British Columbia. The Environmental Assessment process is a decision-making process used to identify, mitigate, and evaluate the potential impacts of a project across the environment, economy, social, culture, and health. The process includes opportunities for participation by First Nations, government agencies, and the public.
Project documents are available on the BC EAO EPIC website
