Canada approves four LNG export licenses for Pacific coast

The Canadian government approves four long-term licenses to export liquefied natural gas from proposed projects on the country's west coast which potentially could allow for the export of up to 73.3M metric tons/year of LNG.

The licenses, which already had received approval from the National Energy Board, are for LNG exports from proposed Pacific coast terminals backed by Exxon Mobil (XOM), BG Group (BRGYY, BRGXF) and Malaysia's state-owned Petronas.

None of the proposed projects have been built or even formally approved by their sponsors.

    Since the apologist-in-chief, Obama, has no realistic or viable energy policy other than "Arab Oil," another country in North America has to take the lead.

    Obama has to keep the oil on Buffet's trains for now.

    Canada just moved another step closer to becoming China's "best friend" in energy. Amazing to me that our government energy planners are so ideologic that they can't put this puzzle together. All the rest of us can.

    Do you think this might be time to start loading up on LNG ships?

    America gets more poor (thank you very much President Food Stamps Obama) while Canada gets richer. When will the sheeple wake up?

    Sure thing moderators, LNG is a Ponzi scheme dominated by mergers and acquisitions, you want to sell investments, therefore the truth is secondary.

    I am unclear what your statement meant. "Truth is secondary"?

    Noothing will be approved for construction until the British Columbia government agrees to no export tax on LNG.

    LNG is being shipped all around the world now and will be shipped from Western Canada. The supply is huge, the port space is available at Kitimat and elsewhere on the western coast, Asia needs the nat gas desperately and will pay far above NA prices and the majors have made investment commitments in LNG plants. It will happen. I am long Western Canadian oils and pipeline companies.

    We are now on the verge of the era of Big Gas that in a couple of decades will surpass Big Oil in terms of revenues, cash flows and investments, even as Big Oil keeps slowly growing.
    The leading players in Big Oil will also be the leading players in Big Gas, especially XOM, CVX and Shell. Gazprom, of course, is not in Big Oil but will be a formidable presence in Big Gas. Companies such as BG that are relatively small today have an opportunity to double or treble in scale over the next 20 years.
    Several state owned oil and gas companies in Asia will succeed in building multinational investment portfolios in Big Gas as the domestic markets in Asia become the chief drivers of the growth in global LNG trade and supply chains.
