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, B.C.in the traditional territory of the Haisla Nation.
It is expected to supply 26m tons of LNG exported annually to Asian markets.

"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.
