Liquified natural gas also an important part of our energy future

Missing from your recent "Energy Policy Briefing" (The Hill Times, June 6) was the crucially important role liquified natural gas (LNG) will play in helping maintain Canada's natural gas supply--If, that is, we build the LNG receiving terminals so desperately needed on our coasts. While the Repsol (Spain)/Irving Oil (New Brunswick) deal just concluded for an LNG re-gasification plant near Saint John is a step in the right direction, more is needed. Canadian LNG projects now on the drawing board would supply more than twice the daily gas deliveries that we expect from the Mackenzie Delta and could be available for consumers three to five years sooner than that Arctic gas. LNG importation will give us access to the enormous pool of world gas resources, something that Japan and Europe already enjoy.
