Prosperity for all when B.C.’s LNG industry takes shape: Expert

Share

After years of waiting and speculation, B.C. is poised to build an LNG industry from scratch in partnership with First Nations and lead the globe with the cleanest LNG product possible to replace dirty coal and oil facilities. This was the message delivered by BC LNG Alliance CEO Bryan Cox during his keynote at this year’s Canada Gas & LNG Exhibition Conference in Vancouver.

LNG Canada’s decision to go ahead with its $40 billion facility in Kitimat, B.C. has breathed new life into a promising industry and the effect on the conference was clear. The day’s program was titled ‘Reflection and Celebration’ which Cox did, laying out the work the industry has been doing to grow ethically and the benefits that it could bring.

Cox noted that since announcing its final investment decision last year, LNG Canada has already awarded $500 million in contracts to companies in the province, many of them owned and operated locally, and by First Nations.
