Cedar LNG, a partnership of the Haisla Nation and Pembina Pipeline Corporation, is on track to make a Final Investment Decision (FID) by the end of June. If the $4.6-billion project in B.C. gets the financial green light, it will aim for arrival of its floating LNG production plant in 2028, along with a connection to the Coastal GasLink (CGL) pipeline for the natural gas to feed the plant. Operations would begin in late 2028, and after that the first shipment of LNG could be sent off to Asia. It will be the first majority Indigenous-owned LNG facility in Canada — and in the world.

Alliance director Clifford White is interviewed by Alberta’s Canadian Energy Centre:  ‘Indigenous people are the caretakers of this planet and we can be a part of making effective change.’ There is a winter spiritual tradition among the members of the Gitxaala Nation of taking a plunge into dark, swirling waters of the Pacific Ocean off Dolphin Island in northern British Columbia, their ancestral home for tens of thousands of years. “Cold water baths is one of our ways. It feels like millions of needles hitting you at once when you jump into the ocean,” says Chief Clifford White, a heredi ..read more

Gas to Growth: A report by Philip Cross in collaboration with Resource Works and the First Nations LNG Alliance

Our Alliance and Resource Works present a new report by statistics expert Philip Cross. It finds LNG investments boost B.C. and Canadian economies more than other projects: a $4.1-billion investment in B.C. leads to a total increase of $4.5 billion in Canada’s GDP, and thousands of Canadian jobs. It also finds Canada has an opportunity to take a bigger share of the world market. But it says there’s a “critical need” in Canada for ‘”thoughtful regulatory frameworks that support the growth of the LNG industry” while balancing environmental and community considerations. • Read it in full here: ht ..read more

Key points from a speech by Alliance CEO Karen Ogen to the Indigenous Partnerships Success Showcase event in Vancouver on 05 June 2024: To know where we are going today, I want to briefly step back to remember where we came from: The Indigenous Energy Gap From the time our lands became industrialized in the 1800s, First Nations experienced a growing energy gap. We did not have the capital, land base, infrastructure, technical capacity or jurisdiction to access the energy to build our economies and grow our communities. Whether it was coal in the 1800s, oil in the 1940s, or hydroelectric dams a ..read more

For all those naysayers predicting gloom and doom for the LNG sector, and Canada’s LNG exports, some corrective thoughts, and for our producers, good news.

Vietnam, the Philippines, Thailand, and Bangladesh could collectively have 65 million tonnes of ..read more

Blog: An LNG ‘scenario’ is not a ‘forecast’

The International Energy Agency (IEA) has long collected and interpreted statistics, and calls itself “the most authoritative global source of energy analysis and projections.” In recent years, though, the IEA has also taken to painting three-part “scenarios” of possibilities. As others have noted, these scenarios tend to look like this: If current government energy policies continue, then the outcome would be X; if governments keep all their climate promises, then Y would happen; if net-zero energy production comes about, then the result would be Z. The executive director of the IEA has stres ..read more
