The Northern View reported that TransCanada is following an aggressive timeline in the construction process for the Prince Rupert Gas Transmission Project and company vice-president John Dunn said time is of the essence in developing Canada’s LNG export to growing markets in Asia as competition is coming from developed sites along the Gulf of Mexico and proposals in countries such as Australia.
“The longer it takes to make a final investment decision [for an export terminal] in B.C., the less likely it is that B.C. will serve a market. Others will step forward to provide LNG. That is not something I say as a person in the industry, that is just the reality.”
— John Dunn, Prince Rupert Gas Transmission Project Vice-President
“Wherever you are on the ideological spectrum, the reality is that Asia’s energy demands are going to be met. The question for B.C. is if we want to be a part of it and receive some of the benefit.”
