Natural Gas

B.C.’s natural gas sector provides development opportunities that are key to future economic growth. B.C.’s abundant natural gas resources, strategic location with access to Asian markets and stable social and political climate are competitive advantages. The Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) industry is an opportunity to grow and diversify B.C.’s economy, and there is increasing interest in developing a value-added natural gas industry.

Natural gas contributed over $7 billion to the provincial economy in 2015. There are approximately 20 LNG export facility proposals in B.C. in various stages of development.
