Full support of the Tilbury LNG expansion project

Reference Number


I am writing to support the Tilbury LNG expansion project for the following reasons:

  • The project will produce clean-burning LNG that will replace Bunker C and MGO as ship fuels, thereby greatly reducing NOx, SOx and particulate emissions.
  •  The project will be fully electrified (E-LNG), so it will be a very clean LNG facility.
  • The project supports the BC natural gas industry, which from a GHG emission perspective is 5 to 8 times cleaner than the US industry on a life-cycle carbon analysis.
  • The project will create hundreds of jobs during construction.  
  • During operation, it will create ~100 direct jobs and 300 indirect opportunities for people in the lower mainland.
  • LNG jobs are well-paying, full-time family wage positions, which is needed to rebuild the economy.
  • The project will create spin off opportunities for businesses across BC
  • The project will support fuel switching from coal to LNG, which represents a 50% decrease in GHG emissions.

Let's not delay this project, it needs to be started as soon as possible.

Thank you
