Working together to bring value to British Columbia
LNG Canada is a co-venture among four companies with extensive experience in developing and operating LNG projects around the globe.
Shell Canada Ltd. is a global leader in LNG and helped pioneer the LNG sector, providing the technology for the world’s first commercial liquefaction plant in 1964. Shell currently has nine LNG projects in operation, in seven countries, with three new projects under construction. Shell was a partner in the first-ever purpose-built LNG carrier and has been delivering LNG safely for nearly half a century. Today, Shell is one of the largest LNG vessel operators in the world, with interests in around a quarter of the LNG vessels in operation.
Korea Gas Corporation (“KOGAS”) is the world’s largest LNG importer. As Korea’s sole LNG provider, KOGAS currently operates three LNG terminals and a nationwide pipeline network, supplying natural gas from around the world to power generation plants, gas-utility companies and city gas companies throughout the country. KOGAS has also diversified into LNG swapping and trading, and LNG terminal construction, operations and management.
Mitsubishi Corporation is Japan’s largest trading company and handles half of Japan’s LNG imports. Since pioneering the first LNG import to Japan from Alaska in 1969, MC has successfully built a portfolio of nine non-operated LNG export investments across Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei, Oman and Russia, many in conjunction with Shell. Mitsubishi is also currently constructing an Mitsubishi-operated LNG project in Indonesia.
PetroChina Company Limited is China’s largest oil and gas producer and supplier, as well as one of the world’s major oilfield service providers and a contractor in engineering construction. PetroChina officially launched three LNG projects in June 2004, two of which have recently begun operations. PetroChina and Shell are developing the Arrow LNG export project in Eastern Australia.
