These areas are key suppliers of natural gas to the developing liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities on the west coasts of British Columbia (Canada) and Oregon (United States). The assessment analyzes the risk associated with the proposed LNG facilities, constructs an independent outlook of how activity in the basin will unfold, and forecasts gas production to the year 2035. The first step toward understanding natural gas as a specific product focus for the region, the study is supported by 70 industry subscriptions and 35 different companies and accomplishes the following:
- Sequences basin development based on resource ownership, gas characteristics, hydrocarbon liquids content, development costs and economics, and LNG facility access.
- Assesses the required long-haul gas feedstock pipelines to the LNG facilities to build a logical case for integrated development.
- Analyzes the existing sales gas systems for the producing area’s gas processing facilities and defines opportunities to modify, expand, and construct new pipes.
