Ottawa Praises LNG Canada’s C$40B BC Investment

The Government of Canada today welcomed LNG Canada’s decision to build a major liquefied natural gas (LNG) project in Kitimat, British Columbia. In a press release, the government said the C$40-billion project represents the largest private sector investment project in the history of the country and will lead to 10,000 middle class jobs. Prime Minister Trudeau further announced C$275 million in federal support, as well as a commitment that trade barriers will not get in the way of this “generational project.” The project includes a natural gas liquefaction facility, a pipeline, and a marine terminal to export surplus Canadian natural gas to some of the world’s fastest growing economies in Asia. Construction is expected to begin in 2018, with the terminal in service by 2024.
