With B.C.’s NDP government onside, the LNG Canada project is tantalizingly close to going ahead and ‘would be a real missed opportunity for Canada’ if it doesn’t
Four and a half years after moving to Vancouver to ready the massive LNG Canada project for a final investment decision, or FID, Andy Calitz likens the state of the mega-energy venture to that of a peak-performance Olympic athlete in the final seconds of a gold-medal race.
It’s beating competitors at that point that makes the difference between winning and losing, said the Royal Dutch Shell PLC executive, one of the world’s top guns in LNG development.
It’s a good thing, then, that after a tortuous seven-year struggle to find a way to deliver Canadian LNG at the lowest possible price to Asia, the South African engineer is feeling optimistic about building an LNG export terminal in Kitimat, B.C.
