Speakers will focus on the compelling economics of Canada’s LNG infrastructure projects and supply agreements, as well as the role of Canadian LNG in meeting global climate policy objectives and reducing CO2 emissions.

“Japan and Korea are the region’s largest importers of LNG, and supplies to China are predicted to soar over the next 20 years. Canadian gas producers are excited to supply Asian markets and LNG is a vital opportunity for Canada’s energy sector.”
