Canada’s First LNG Export Shipment Arrives in China

FortisBC announced that its single ISO container shipment of LNG, the first LNG to be exported from Canada to China, arrived in China on Thursday.  The LNG was produced at FortisBC’s Tilbury plant near Vancouver, British Columbia.  According to the press release, since the LNG was shipped via container ship, bypassing receiving LNG terminals and regasification facilities, cost and infrastructure constraints of the conventional model of shipping by LNG tanker were avoided.  “FortisBC is now looking forward to a new shipment of four ISO containers to China in mid-December and the prospect of more LNG shipments in the new year.”
