Petronas to Invest USD 20 Bln in Pacific NorthWest LNG in Canada

Petronas of Malaysia expects investment of $20 billion in the Pacific NorthWest LNG export project in Canada, Reuters reported, citing Arif Mahmood, vice president of corporate planning at Petronas.

Petronas also may build a third train and the company is in talks with several buyers to sell stakes in the LNG export project.

What we’re looking for is actually potential partners where they will also be offtakers of the gas,” Mahmood said, adding that company will own at least 50 percent of the LNG project.

Pacific NorthWest LNG is a proposed liquefaction and export facility on Lelu Island within the District of Port Edward on land administered by the Port of Prince Rupert.

The facility would liquefy and export natural gas produced by Progress Energy Canada in northeastern BC.

Gas to Liquids

The volatile oil price has had a dramatic impact on the Gas to Liquids market and some large-scale projects’ operators have struggled to adapt to this unsteady landscape. Over the last 12 months, we have witnessed a few promising projects halt or even shut down altogether. However, whilst some doors have had to close, other doors are opening with interesting emerging markets on the new GTL field. A few companies have discovered ways to significantly reduce operating costs and prove to be commercially viable despite the current economic climate.

Against this backdrop, SMi’s 19th annual Gas to Liquids conference will discuss how GTL companies can work with the tumbling oil price and how they can build robust strategies and create effective alternative solutions to enable them to weather the storm. The programme will have a special focus on small-scale GTL projects, giving you the chance to hear first-hand success stories from leading GTL operators. The two-day event will provide the ideal platform for experts to discuss with peers what companies need in place in order to overcome today’s challenges, with leading industry figures dissecting cutting edge topics, including project financing, marketing of GTL projects and innovative alternative applications of GTL plants.
