VICTORIA – Deputy Premier and Minister of Natural Gas Development Rich Coleman issued the following statement about LNG Canada’s announcement today that it has selected a main contractor for its proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) export terminal in Kitimat, B.C.:

“LNG Canada’s decision to select a main contractor is great news, moving the province closer to a new LNG export facility and the company another step forward toward a final investment decision.

“Developing an LNG industry will result in some of the largest private-sector investments in British Columbia’s history, and will produce new economic activity for our communities, creating thousands of jobs for British Columbians.”

The LNG Canada export terminal project is comprised of Shell Canada Energy (an affiliate of Royal Dutch Shell plc) and affiliates of PetroChina, Korea Gas Corp and Mitsubishi Corp. The proposed export terminal in Kitimat will include operating a gas liquefaction plant and facilities for the storage and export of LNG, including marine facilities.
