The LNG-Buy BC online tool designed to connect local B.C. businesses with international LNG proponents is now available for pre-registration at the LNG-Buy BC website.
“The online tool will allow B.C. businesses to connect with major projects and ensure the province’s LNG-related businesses are in line for the potential of the LNG industry. It will also help support the promotion and marketing of B.C. companies to global businesses for both export opportunities and for foreign direct investment projects,” a statement by the B.C. government said.
The LNG-Buy BC online tool was first demonstrated at the 2nd annual LNG conference in Vancouver in May. When the entire online platform is launched later this year, it will be a key resource for LNG proponents to network with B.C. businesses.
“We encourage all B.C. businesses interested in pursuing LNG opportunities to pre-register using the online tool. Early registration ensures that when the online tool is launched, B.C. can showcase the full range of services and capabilities B.C. businesses have to offer,” the statement said.
The LNG-Buy BC program has provided supplier boot camps and RFP seminars to more than 300 B.C. companies to date. These free workshops help companies better understand the procurement opportunities and processes associated with serving major LNG projects.
