CPABC Industry Update Summer 2014 - Page 3

S P R I N G 2 0 1 4 Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and British Columbia Over the past two years, LNG has become one of the most important, and controversial, issues in British Columbia. The global LNG market is rapidly growing and many BC and foreign companies are hoping to capitalize on BC’s large natural gas reserves. However, development of the LNG industry has been met with environmental concerns and a need to meaningfully consult with local First Nations. This issue of CPABC Industry Update profiles the economic potential of the LNG industry in BC, the global LNG market, the challenges of transporting LNG, the infrastructure that is being created to export LNG, the need for full consultation and partnerships with local First Nations, and the impact a blossoming LNG industry could have on CPAs and the BC economy. British Columbia’s CA, CGA, and CMA bodies are currently working to unite under the CPA designation. CPABC Industry Update is their online magazine for members, candidates, and students working in industry. About CPABC Industry Update is published online four times a year and is sent to over 28,000 CA, CGA, and CMA members, candidates, and students in British Columbia.
