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.
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. Opinions expressed are not
