We are establishing a new business venture within the Canadian natural gas and LNG export industry. With offices in Vancouver and Squamish, we are currently focusing on the development of a small-scale liquefied natural gas (LNG) processing and export facility, located approximately seven kilometres southwest of Squamish, British Columbia – The Woodfibre LNG Project. It is currently anticipated that the Project could export approximately two million tonnes of LNG per year, which is about one-tenth of the anticipated volume of some of the large LNG projects proposed for northern B.C.
