Royal Dutch Shell Plc and its LNG Canada partners have once again pushed back the timing of a decision on building a British Columbia liquefied natural gas export (LNG) terminal, the latest setback for the Canadian province's energy ambitions.
LNG Canada, whose participants also include PetroChina Co Ltd, Mitsubishi Corporation and Kogas, cited global industry challenges, including capital constraints, for requiring more time prior to making a final investment decision.
The proposed project, which would be located on British Columbia's rugged northern coastline, was one of the front runners in a now slowing race to build Canada's first LNG export terminal.
The venture had originally planned to make its final investment decision in the first half of 2016. In February it pushed the deadline to the end of the year.
In its statement on Monday, the group said they could not confirm when the decision would be made. (bit.ly/29EfvKl)...
Well, it would appear, based on all that blather from Marky Mark's Klout Klub, etcetera, that this can only mean one thing...
Shell has clearly become a wholly-owned subsidiary of John Horgan and the BCNDP!
*And predicted by GrantG, like, ages ago.
As for all that dorm room and 'seeing things' stuff...Well...You know.
Of course, never ending corporocraptic delays in saying 'No' means that superfine local proMedia folks like Ron Obvious and The Keef will be able to pretend that the LNG game is still actually on next spring...
