COWICHAN VALLEY CITIZEN – Steelhead LNG committed to quality

posted Feb 23, 2016 at 4:00 PM

As the discussion about our proposed LNG project takes shape, we’re seeing a number of critics quoted in the media who continue to make inaccurate claims about the project and about LNG itself.

All of us at Steelhead LNG believe in having a broad and energetic community conversation about our proposed project, and we’re certainly prepared to be challenged by those who have questions or concerns.

However, we really hope it will be a discussion based on facts and science, and not on the myths and misconceptions.

CBC – B.C. LNG investment will yield long-term profits says energy analyst

The Early Edition · CBC News February 17, 2016

Global climate change commitments mean countries will buy LNG to clean energy supply says analyst.

The B.C. government made the right decision putting their eggs in the LNG basket, because the move will yield long-term profits, says one energy analyst.

The B.C. Liberals are putting $100 million of taxpayers’ money into a LNG prosperity fund and say more money will be added when the LNG industry takes off in B.C.

But the industry itself is warning that with oil prices falling the window of opportunity is rapidly closing. Some economists, however, maintain the future is bright for the natural gas industry because of climate change agreements.

SAANICH NEWS – Steelhead still bullish on LNG plans for Vancouver Island

Never mind the choppy waters, it’s still damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead for the firm behind Vancouver Island’s biggest industrial proposal in at least a generation.

Despite glum economic forecasts, political opposition and upheaval for one of its key partners, the CEO of Steelhead LNG says the company is still on track to make a 2018 decision on whether to proceed with a multi-billion-dollar plan to build two liquified natural gas plants on Vancouver Island.

“We are on target, given the schedule we had before,” Steelhead CEO Nigel Kuzemko said.

Kuzemko’s comments come in the wake of Tuesday’s throne speech where Premier Christy Clark pledged the B.C. government’s continued commitment to LNG exports, despite project delays and a global glut of oil and gas.

HUFFINGTON POST – LNG Investments Will Have Long-Term Benefits For B.C.

Keith SashawPresident and CEO, Association of Consulting Engineering Companies – BC
Posted: Updated:
The issuance of a key permit required for the development of the LNG Canada project by Shell is an exciting development, as it moves the project one step closer to fruition.

The facility permit from the B.C. Oil and Gas Commission outlines the requirements for design, construction and operation of the proposed liquefied natural gas facility in Kitimat, B.C. While this alone does not guarantee the project will move forward, it is an indication that the proponents of the project still see benefits of establishing an LNG plant in B.C.

These benefits are considerable: the climate of B.C.’s north coast is colder and therefore requires less energy to liquefy natural gas than in other areas, such as the Gulf Coast; there are abundant gas fields relatively close to the plant; the north west coast of B.C. is considerably closer to many markets than competing jurisdictions; and B.C. has an abundant supply of engineers, planners and construction workers that are fully capable of building and operating a complex plant.
