Not so long ago, conventional wisdom was that technical expertise was the most important ingredient to successfully build an energy megaproject. While technical excellence is still absolutely necessary – particularly in technically challenging remote locations – it is no longer sufficient to ensure megaprojects like LNG Canada get off the ground.
Andy Calitz, CEO of LNG Canada, will share some of the opportunities and challenges associated with planning an LNG project in British Columbia. Join us to hear how LNG Canada is planning to sustainably develop an LNG export facility that will provide a security of supply of abundant Canadian natural gas to global markets. And, in the process, become a trusted entity that delivers long-term value to First Nations, local communities, British Columbia and Canada.
Following his keynote, Mr. Calitz will be joined in a panel discussion with other industry experts.
