From Chris Bloomer – President and CEO, Canadian Energy Pipeline Association:
“The Canadian Energy Pipeline Association (CEPA) welcomes today’s announcement that LNG Canada will proceed with the liquefied natural gas (LNG) project in Kitimat, B.C. This decision is a significant step forward in ensuring Canada’s ability to export responsibly-produced Canadian energy to global markets and obtain a fair price for our resources. The project also represents a major investment in the Canadian economy, which is critical as our country seeks to attract and retain foreign capital.
“Transmission pipelines are essential to safely and responsibly transporting oil and natural gas to processing facilities across Canada, and TransCanada Corporation’s Coastal GasLink pipeline project will supply natural gas to LNG Canada at a world-class safety standard.
“These are Canadian resources and the benefits of access to new markets will be felt across the country for years to come. LNG exports are an important part of our economy, and Canada’s transmission pipeline companies will work with Canadians to build a safer, smarter energy future.”
