B.C. and AltaGas Sign Domestic LNG Deal

Clark and AltaGas Sign Deal to Grow Use of LNG in B.C.

British Columbia Premier Christy Clark and AltaGas executive vice president corporate development John Lowe, signed a Letter of Intent to grow the use of liquefied natural gas in the province. This is the first agreement of its kind for domestic LNG.

“LNG is a cleaner, cheaper energy source for northern communities,” said Premier Clark. “This Letter of Intent is another milestone for the development of B.C.’s LNG industry – not just for export, but also here at home,” remarked Clark.

The Letter of Intent commits the Province and AltaGas to work towards a project development agreement to support AltaGas’ plans to build a network of small LNG facilities throughout northern B.C. This may assist in moving the first phase of the project to final investment decision.

The first phase of the project is a liquefaction facility in Dawson Creek that would convert pipeline quality natural gas into LNG. The plant would initially serve larger customers in the power generation, space heating and oil and gas industries, and as the project develops, provide northern communities an alternative to diesel. Natural Gas is the cleanest burning fossil fuel.

4th Annual Upstream West Africa Summit 2018

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
