LNG exports: the subsidy pressures mount

Re: Asian buyers want cheaper BC gas

Can't miss the main message in this story: Christy Clark must mark down the cost of BC's LNG, or the Asian market won't be there, the companies hoping to produce LNG in BC won't sink the capital in, and her promises to deliver the pot'o'gold in time for the election in 2017 go pffft.

BC's brilliant LNG export scheme: announce an already stale subsidy

Re: Energy companies get B.C. natural gas extraction royalty breaks

Wow! This'll mollify an unhappy natural gas industry. Unhappy? How could they not be: hundreds of millions of dollars invested in BC natural gas, prices utterly collapsed, and nowhere to sell all this gas. If LNG doesn't fly, more than a few jobs and executive bonuses are on the line.

BC's brilliant electricity export scheme: pay $750 million to California.

Re: BC Hydro's Powerex agrees to settlement in California claims

Twelve years of the Liberal government and Powerex/BC Hydro officials claiming that Powerex did no wrong.

The LNG throne speech - full of gas

Natives question pipeline ownership Vancouver Sun, Canadian Press. Hana Boye, who represents the Haisla band which claims much of the pipeline's route as its traditional territory, queried Enbridge officials at the Joint Review Panel hearing yesterday on who put up money for ten $10-million option agreements that could guarantee their holders space in the pipeline and a share of its ownership. Enbridge VP John Fisher conceded the Chinese state-owned oil company Sinopec owns one of the $10-million units but some of the unit owners cannot be divulged due to confidentiality agreements.

The dirt on Kitimat Clean

Re: B.C. newspaper tycoon proposing $13-billion oil refinery for Northern Gateway oil

David Black’s proposal to build a refinery in Kitimat isn’t quite complete vapourware, in terms of the viability of the idea. But it’s pretty close to it – and the nattering online and in offices following Black's announcement has quickly pointed out its more obvious shortcomings.

Energy dog is chasing its tail

Re: Natural gas a better choice than Site C dam

If you think Alberta has a problem, you should check out BC

Re: Groups launch campaign calling for independent review of pipeline safety

Alberta's pipelines are springing leaks on almost a weekly basis now. The province has given the oil, gas, and pipeline industry an easy ride for decades, and the combination of years, sheer number of pipes and the lax oversight is making itself evident.
