Is LNG for me?
The Northwest is on the cusp of a massive change.
Sometimes change is for the better. Sometimes it is not. Currently there are 14 natural gas pipelines and LNG plants proposed for the Northwest. It is highly unlikely all of this will proceed. But how many will and where will they be? Some 'proposals' are becoming realities of slashed and staked survey lines. Landowners are being offered wads of money. This is how the natural gas industry works.
Pipelines need compressor stations with turbine engines and flare stacks. Pipelines will bring fracking. If you value your fishing spot or a favourite stretch of river to walk along, it is time to get involved. If you drink water or breathe air, it is time to get involved.
All bound for foreign markets, the world's largest tankers will enter our ports. How secure is the price of natural gas on the world market, as numerous other countries join the race? The B.C. government claims this is our golden goose. We've all smelled a rotten egg before. We've seen boom/bust economies that fill pockets overnight, and leave a legacy of turmoil.
Please, educate yourselves.
