You and your guests are invited to attend the Sea-to-Sky Branch Dinner Presentation on "Liquefied Natural Gas: Why Is This Commodity Suddenly in Demand?"
  • What is all the excitement about?
  • What is liquefied natural gas (LNG)?
  • What types of markets are evolving?
  • Where is it all happening in BC?
  • What are the regulatory key points?
  • What is in it for us – what should professionals take note of? 
This presentation will offer insight into the LNG markets and what are the truths and the fictions. The speaker will explore potential impacts on safety, the environment, transport, and what markets are developing in Canada and more specifically locally in BC. Furthermore, the speaker will explore the myths and the facts that will unravel the misunderstandings and “clouds” of media stories and offer from a technical perspective what LNG is and its similarities and differences from other fuels.
