Pacific NorthWest LNG: FID ready?

Pacific NorthWest LNG: FID ready?

Report summary

PETRONAS' Pacific NorthWest LNG project faces multiple potential engineering and local community challenges in its execution.  But as it vies to be Canada's initial large-scale LNG development, it must first achieve final environmental authorisation from the federal government and reduce costs to improve its competitiveness. Changes to the LNG tax regime recently announced by Ottawa and the British Columbia government are helpful in this regard but the critical issue now is development costs.
