From Financial Post, Sept 4.
As 16 LNG consortiums consider investments on the West Coast, Vancouver, B.C.-based FortisBC Energy Inc. is expected to beat the traffic and start supplying LNG to Hawaiian Electric Co. under a 15-year agreement starting mid-2017, subject to regulatory approvals.
“This is our first long-term agreement of this type,” said Doug Stout, vice-president, market development and external relations at FortisBC. “It’s a niche LNG project, and a different kind of play than the northern B.C. and U.S. Gulf Coast projects, which are very large scale and have large shipping logistics.”
