B.C. LNG Alliance says enough gas exists to support large exports

According to an article in the Vancouver Sun, the B.C. LNG Alliance is refuting a claim that Canada does not have enough natural gas to support large exports. In a report released by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives it was stated that the production levels of proposed LNG plants would outpace the ability of the sector to supply them from existing gas fields.

The claim doesn’t consider the gas that is becoming a surplus as a result of dropping exports to the US according to the president of the alliance, David Keane. He also said it doesn’t take into account the pace of gas discoveries.

He stated, “I think that the author is cherry-picking some of the facts, and I think when you look at the amount of gas resources available in British Columbia, there is a tremendous amount of resource available for production and export.”

He added companies would not be willing to put in billions of dollars in plants and pipelines if they did not believe there was to fill them.
