Competitive Advantages

A unique energy project for British Columbia

While there are a number of LNG projects proposed for the Kitimat area, LNG Canada is unique because of the extensive experience the four co-venture companies have in the LNG industry – in production, import and export facilities, and shipping – and because three of the partners are themselves importers of LNG. For example, Shell helped pioneer the LNG sector and today has nine LNG facilities in operation in seven countries, with three new projects under construction; KOGAS is the sole provider of LNG imports for Korea; Mitsubishi is responsible for 57% of Japan’s LNG imports and is participating in nine global LNG projects; and PetroChina is China’s largest oil and gas producer and supplier.
