LNG stakeholder event slated for Vancouver

Discussions will centre around international competitiveness, consultation with First Nations labour strategies

A liquefied natural gas (LNG) multi-stakeholder collaboration event is planned to take place in Vancouver from April 15 to 16.

The purpose of the event is to get terminal and pipeline proponents, producers, local communities, First Nations, buyers and government working together to accelerate final investment decisions.

This is the third such conference.

To that end, some of the discussions will centre around international competitiveness, consultation with First Nations and labour strategies for hiring foreign and domestic workers. 

A big part of the conversation will surround oil  price volatility and the amount of tax producers will have to pay. 

The topic of the keynote panel, consisting of WesPac Midstream, Oregon LNG and Steelhead LNG executives, is “LNG Fiscal Regime and Oil Price Implications.”

Eleven LNG export licenses have been approved for the 20 proposed export facilities in B.C. and the Pacific Northwest United States. 

None, however, have yet made a financial investment decision that would signal a firm commitment to proceed with construction.
