Canada’s gas industry launches secure energy initiative
Canada's gas energy industry launched its Energy for a Secure Future (ESF) on February 15, opening a dialogue it hopes will bring a new vision for the country’s gas energy sector.
The ESF’s advisory council includes key business representatives, industry groups and civil society organizations. To date it is comprised of the Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters, the Canadian Chemistry Industry Association, the Canadian Gas Association and indigenous organisations the Indian Resource Council and the First Nations LNG Alliance.
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.
“The past twelve months have provided new insight into how Canada should think about our energy future,” said Shannon Joseph, formerly a vice president of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, who will chair the Council for a Secure Energy Future. “Our natural gas, other gaseous fuels, and the infrastructure that moves them can play a key role in reducing global emissions, advancing reconciliation, supporting our international allies, and creating prosperity at home.”
Other members of the ESF’s advisory council include Crystal Smith, chief councillor of Haisla Nation and chair of the First Nations LNG Alliance, Dominic Barton, chair of Rio Tinto and former Canadian ambassador to China, and Ricardo Prosperi, president of Tenaris in Canada.
