Canada Inks 1st Long-Term Contract to Ship LNG to China

first_imgCanadian company FortisBC has entered into its first term supply agreement to produce liquefied natural gas (LNG) for Top Speed Energy Corp. to export to China.This term supply agreement is said to be a major development in Canada’s LNG export industry as it allows an increased supply of domestic LNG to China.It was made possible by the completion of the Tilbury LNG expansion project in Delta, B.C. earlier this year.The two-year agreement will see 53,000 tonnes of LNG a year or about 60 ISO containers a week shipped from Tilbury to China by the summer of 2021.“This is the first agreement of its kind that will see Canadian LNG shipped regularly to China,” Douglas Stout, FortisBC vice-president of market development and external relations, said.“There is strong demand for Canadian LNG in China and this is an exciting time to be working in the industry here in B.C,” he added.In 2017, FortisBC became the first company in Canada to supply LNG for export to China. Since then FortisBC has been supplying LNG to customers for export to China on a spot basis. With the expansion project adding LNG production capacity of 250,000 tonnes per year and additional storage capacity of 46,000 cubic metres, Tilbury is leading Canada’s export industry into uncharted territory.Tilbury’s new expansion facility is designed to be one of the cleanest LNG facilities in the world. This agreement would reduce between 90,000 and 180,000 tonnes of GHG emissions annually, according to a lifecycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions tool developed specifically for Tilbury.“The announcement of an LNG contract at Tilbury is an encouraging step for Canada’s LNG export industry. We are using sustainable Canadian fuels to reduce worldwide carbon emissions,” Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Natural Resources, pointed out.Shipping LNG by ISO container helps meet the energy demands of industrial and public utility customers in China who are not connected to a pipeline network as the containers can be transported virtually anywhere and don’t require large regasification terminals to convert the LNG back into natural gas. “The market for Canadian LNG will increase as China seeks to reduce air pollution and carbon emissions by switching to lower-carbon energy,” Chen Jianrong, Top Speed Energy CEO, noted.last_img read more
