The 2014 International LNG in B.C. Conference was a sold-out success, furthering the prospects of developing a liquefied natural gas (LNG) export industry in the province. Over 1,400 delegates attended the three-day showcase titled Powering a Strong Economy: British Columbia’s LNG in the Global Market. Industry proponents, international investors, and major suppliers were present. Provincial government officials, local communities, First Nations leaders, academics and local communities participated in 14 engaging panel sessions focused on furthering B.C.’s LNG growth.
The 2015 International LNG in B.C. Conference, October 14-16th, 2015, will again showcase the province’s commitment to building a clean and prosperous LNG industry. A series of panel discussions and speaker keynotes will cover key topics relevant to B.C.’s LNG industry.
