There is a tremendous opportunity for natural gas from B.C., exported as LNG, to make a global contribution while benefitting First Nations, British Columbians and Canadians here at home. We have a wealth of natural resources that the world needs and we have the ability to develop these resources in a sustainable manner, provide jobs and economic opportunity for the Province, and deliver products to the world that have the lowest carbon intensity.
Canada currently has only one customer for our abundance of clean natural gas: the U.S. Over the past 10 years, the U.S. has aggressively pursued its own natural gas development as part of their energy independence goals. As a result, our product is in less demand and fetching a lower price. The ability to send Canadian natural gas to overseas markets would mean new investment and opportunity for Canadians, as well as the ability to contribute to a reduction in global GHGs.
