LNG Canada sets example, says First Nations leader
Getting a multibillion-dollar liquefied natural gas (LNG) project built in Canada is no cakewalk.
How did Shell and Coastal GasLink manage to get their projects to the starting line, after more than a dozen other proposals fell by the wayside? Answering that question was one of the themes at last week’s annual Canada Gas and LNG Exhibition and Conference.
The LNG Canada and Woodfibre LNG projects succeeded, where others failed, because they had buy-in from First Nations. They also may have earned some social licence by designing projects that are said to have the lowest greenhouse gas emissions intensities in the world for LNG projects.
