LNG: The Business Case and Global Environmental Picture

The Province of BC is forging ahead with ambitious plans to develop the liquefied natural gas (LNG) extraction and shipping industry within a competitive world marketplace. But what is the business case for such an endeavour? How will all of BC benefit from LNG? Moreover, how do the local environmental challenges posed by LNG balance against the global climate picture? While a previous Carbon Talk explored the risk and reward of LNG development, this panel will examine if the natural gas business case is strong enough to be the driving force of the BC economy. How does that business case hold up under the scrutiny of high environmental expectations from the BC public?

Panelists include:

  • Tom Syer – Vice President of Policy and Communications, BC Business Council
  • Kathryn Harrison – Professor of Political Science, UBC
  • Geoff Morrison – Manager, British Columbia Operations, Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers

When: Wednesday, October 30 from 12:30 – 1:30 PM
Where: SFU Harbour Centre, 515 West Hastings St., Room 1700
Registration: Seating for this free event is limited, please register with us to attend
