The Companies behind LNG Canada

LNG Canada is a joint venture among Shell, PETRONAS, PetroChina, Mitsubishi and KOGAS, five companies that are global leaders in LNG, providing world-class technical expertise in producing, storing, shipping and selling natural gas, along with access to markets.

From the outset, LNG Canada worked to become the project of choice for British Columbia. Every decision we’ve made during the planning and design process has been done keeping safety, the environment, economic and community interests top-of-mind.

Our JV Participants include:

Shell — a global leader in LNG since 1964, helping to pioneer the LNG sector. Shell operates about 20% of the world’s LNG vessels and has LNG supply projects either in operation or under construction in ten countries.

PETRONAS — is a fully integrated energy company with extensive experience in LNG. Through its wholly owned upstream energy company Progress Energy and its partners, PETRONAS is one of the largest natural gas reserves owner in Canada – with the majority of these reserves in the North Montney natural gas formation in northeast British Columbia.

PetroChina Company Limited —  is China’s largest oil and gas producer and supplier. PetroChina launched three LNG import facilities in China and is increasingly an investor in global unconventional gas production and LNG export facilities.

Mitsubishi Corporation — is Japan’s largest trading company with more than 50% share of LNG imported into Japan. Mitsubishi has been investing in LNG since 1969 and has an interest in 11 LNG export projects globally.

Korea Gas Corporation (KOGAS) — is the world’s largest LNG importing company and South Korea’s principal LNG provider. KOGAS operates four LNG import terminals and a nationwide pipeline network in South Korea, and another terminal in Mexico.
