Legal Win: First Nation Stops Nexen Energy From Sucking Lake Dry for Fracking


Fort Nelson First Nation in northern British Columbia has won a key ruling that stops Nexen Inc. from pumping millions of gallons of water from a local lake for fracking purposes.

The ruling could pave the way for similar cases, according to Fort Nelson.

“By canceling the license, the EAB has set a precedent for future provincially supported fracking and LNG exports,” Fort Nelson said in a statement.
