Canada open to supporting more LNG terminals: press

Canada is open to supporting more LNG export terminals within its borders, as long as they are economically feasible and can be proven to be displacing coal-fired power generation, federal finance minister Chrystia Freeland said October 14.

Speaking to reporters in Washington at the end of IMF and World Bank meetings, Freeland said Ottawa “will always be looking at economically-viable LNG projects”, according to a Reuters report.


The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (NGC) NGC’s HSSE strategy is reflective and supportive of the organisational vision to become a leader in the global energy business.

German chancellor Olaf Scholz visited Canada in August, hoping to come away with new LNG supply commitments from prime minister Justin Trudeau.

But Trudeau was non-committal, questioning the business case for LNG on Canada’s Atlantic coast and instead steering the German leader towards Canada’s future green hydrogen capabilities – which likely won’t be realised for several years.

Two east coast LNG projects remain on the table – Pieridae Energy’s 10mn mt/yr Goldboro LNG project in Nova Scotia, and a possible conversion by Repsol of its little-used LNG import and regasification terminal in New Brunswick. Both projects, however, are hampered by a lack of pipeline capacity to move feed gas from western Canada.
