Shell Approves Long-Awaited Canadian LNG Project

03 Octobre, 2018, 04:28 | Auteur: Auguste Feret

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau assured Royal Dutch Shell Plc's newly sanctioned US$31 billion liquefied natural gas project that it won't be hindered by trade barriers such as steel import duties.

"Today's announcement by LNG Canada represents the single largest private sector investment project in Canadian history", stated Trudeau in a press release.

Pierce would not comment on media reports earlier this week suggesting that the boards of JVPs PetroChina and Korea Gas had approved their respective shares of the project.

Petronas said the project is operated through LNG Canada Development Inc.

LNG Canada announced late Monday night that its joint venture participants - Shell, PETRONAS, PetroChina, Mitsubishi Corporation and KOGAS -have taken a Final Investment Decision to build the LNG Canada export facility in Kitimat, the traditional territory of the Haisla Nation.

It is expected to supply 26m tons of LNG exported annually to Asian markets.

Other large project approvals on the horizon include Novatek's Arctic LNG-2 project with 19.8 mtpa capacity after the Russian gas company's Yamal export facility started operations smoothly and quickly at the end of past year.

"We'll see what LNG Canada does, but should they proceed with the final investment decisions, it will be certainly significant for our province", he told Global News on September 26.

As a result of the project, the report said, "LNG Canada will be able to send cargoes from Kitimat, British Columbia to Tokyo in about eight days versus 20 days from the US Gulf".

LNG Canada CEO Andy Calitz says the project received support from the B.C. government, local First Nations and the Kitimat community.

The decision involves two processing units, with the first liquefied natural gas expected to be shipped before the middle of the next decade.

The joint venture of JGC-Fluor Corp has been appointed as the project's engineering, procurement and construction contractor.

The announcement is being welcomed by B.C.'s business community. "I believe we can create far more jobs in other industries that won't drastically increase our emissions".

TransCanada Corp. said in a separate statement it will move forward with its C$6.2 billion Coastal GasLink pipeline, a 420-mile (676-kilometer) conduit that will carry gas from British Columbia to LNG Canada for export.

"LNG Canada is well positioned to help Shell meet the growing needs of customers at a time when we see an LNG supply shortage in our outlook".

The project will boost Canada's oilpatch, which has struggled to attract investment due to the government's stumbles in winning regulatory approval to expand the Trans Mountain oil pipeline.

What's more, there were doubts until the last moment as the local stakeholders still remembered the US$27-billion Pacific NorthWest LNG project, which Malaysia's Petronas quit a year ago, again because of the low LNG price environment.

Karen Tam Wu, B.C. director of the Pembina Institute, a Canadian sustainable energy think-tank, told National Observer the B.C. government must reconcile LNG's carbon pollution with the province's climate goals in their strategy plan.
