What Would LNG Mean for Northeast B.C.? Infographic

Publication - June 18, 2015 - By Kevin Sauve, Steven Cretney

There are currently 19 proposals for liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminals along B.C.’s coast. While most of these projects are unlikely to be developed, if even a few proceed, the LNG terminals will create considerable pressure to increase the development of B.C.’s shale gas resources in the northeast. The environmental impacts of such development could be significant and the magnitude of those impacts have not been thoroughly explored or addressed. 

The Pembina Institute, with modelling support from Navius Research, developed this scenario-planning tool to better understand these environmental impacts. This infographic outlines the potential impacts from three LNG development scenarios.
