Okanagan College Series - Natural Gas, Oil and Canada's Economic Recovery



Wed, Oct 20th, 2021


12:00 am to 1:30 pm


After years of challenges and delays, new access to growing international markets for Canadian commodifies is under construction in the form of the Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion, LNG Canada and the Coastal Gaslink pipeline.

In fact, B.C. is poised to be a major player in the international LNG business by exporting natural gas from the northeastern part of the province to markets in China, India and elsewhere. The industry also offers a reliable, sustainable way to lead Canada’s economic recovery for years to come. The International Energy Agency projects that demand for natural gas will increase 15 percent by 2030 and 30 percent by 2040 – making it one of the fastest growing sources of energy world-wide. This growth will be driven by the continuing increase in demand for energy globally and the fact that natural gas is also one of the lowest impact sources of power available today. In addition, Canadian-produced natural gas and LNG is among the lowest emission intensive in the world. This means in both the present and long-term there are opportunities for Canadian natural gas to make a better world. Join Tim McMillan, President and CEO of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, for an insightful discussion of the resource industry’s role in Canada’s economic recovery.
