“Our government is pleased to work with partners to determine how LNG can be used as a safe and environmentally responsible marine fuel on the West Coast of Canada,” said James Moore, Minister Responsible for British Columbia and Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages. “In addition, results of this work will be applicable to similar initiatives in the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Seaway, as well as the East Coast of Canada.”
Launched in late 2012, the West Coast Marine LNG project will conclude with the release of a final report in November 2013 documenting technology readiness, training, safe operations and regulatory requirements, and environmental and economic benefits from a Canadian point of view. The project is supported by the Government of Canada under the direction of the Canadian Natural Gas Vehicle Alliance (CNGVA) who is playing a lead role in coordinating participation and resource contributions.
