BRINGING THE CANADIAN LNG EXPORT INDUSTRY TOGETHER WITH ASIAN BUYERS, FIRST NATIONS AND KEY REGULATORS
With the current glut of natural gas in Canada due to increases in shale gas production and disappearing demand from the U.S.A., it is now pivotal for the entire Canadian natural gas industry that they establish LNG export infrastructure to reach new Asian markets such as Japan, China and India. However, although seven LNG export terminals have now already received government approval, many obstacles still lie in the way of the creation of a globally competitive LNG export industry in Canada.
For the industry to get off the ground, Canadian LNG terminal developers need to collaborate with regulators to establish a fertile fiscal framework to attract buyers, work with First Nations to create mutually beneficial solutions for establishing pipeline infrastructure and, crucially, find Asian buyers who are willing to enter into long term contracts. With rival projects being developed in the U.S., Australia and Qatar, these obstacles need to be overcome urgently before the opportunity is missed.
To address these challenges, the Canadian LNG Exports: Multi-Stakeholder Collaboration Initiative 2014 will be the first Canadian-specific platform connecting Canadian LNG Terminal developers and regulators with Asian buyers from Japan, China and India and key First Nations groups to find practical solutions for collaborating to establish a globally competitive LNG export industry in Canada.
The event will provide a 360 degree view from each stakeholder group on what they are doing to speed up the development of the Canadian LNG export industry and what they need from the other stakeholders in order to move forward, with the practical output of laying the foundations for the new wave of national and international partnerships that will push the industry forward. It will include perspective from:
ASIAN BUYERS : Key buyers from China, Japan and India who are looking specifically at the Canadian LNG market will explain for he first time their strategy and readiness for entering into long term contracts and forecast projected prices and netbacks for Canadian LNG exported to Asia.
REGULATORS : Federal and provincial regulators will explain how they intend to create a stable fiscal and regulatory framework for supporting the Canadian LNG export industry and providing strategies for securing the manpower necessary to power it.
FIRST NATIONS : Key First Nations groups will break down exactly what they need from the industry in terms of economic benefits and environmental stewardship in order for them to get behind the creation of a Canadian LNG export industry.
LNG TERMINAL DEVELOPERS : LNG Terminal developers will break down the timings, locations and projected competitivity of proposed LNG export terminals and how the industry can work with regulators to ensure the opportunity is not missed
PIPELINE DEVELOPERS : Pipeline developers will provide updates on the progress being made in overcoming the environmental challenges of establishing pipeline networks to feed Canadian LNG export terminals
The event will be the only place to hear updates from every key stakeholder group and be part of the new wave of collaborative partnerships in the emerging Canadian LNG export industry as it is formed.
