Minister of Natural Gas Development, Rich Coleman, has welcomed WesPac Midstream’s application to export LNG. WesPac filed an application with the NEB for a licence to export up to 3 million tpa of LNG from the Tilbury LNG plant in Delta, British Columbia.
Coleman commented: "British Columbia's LNG potential is growing and creating opportunities for companies in our province.
"WesPac Midstream - Vancouver LLC (WesPac) is the latest company to submit an export request with Canada's National Energy Board.
"Our province has a vast supply of natural gas to support expansion and energy demands. WesPac will work with FortisBC to build an LNG operation near Vancouver that will serve both domestic and international needs.
"On behalf of the Province of British Columbia I would like to welcome WesPac to those looking to export clean energy to the Asia, creating jobs and new economic opportunities here at home."
