LOCAL BENEFITS

The Tilbury Pacific LNG project will deliver community benefits through good-paying jobs and business opportunities to boost the local economy for many years.

  • Generate short-term jobs during the initial construction phase.
  • Generate long-term jobs during the operation of the facility;
  • Support jobs growth in the natural gas sector and the broader energy and marine industries across BC.
  • Support municipal programs and spending in the community by paying industrial property taxes to the City of Delta.

GLOBAL BENEFITS

Emissions and Pollution

The world is turning to affordable natural gas as an alternative to coal and oil.

The International Energy Agency projects that natural gas use will increase 45 percent by 2040.

With the lowest LNG carbon intensity target in the world, B.C. LNG is a very attractive option for foreign customers looking to reduce their GHG emissions. Exporting surplus Canadian natural gas through Tilbury Pacific will help support the environmental goals of countries that lack Canada’s abundance of energy options.

LNG is an attractive alternative fuel because its GHG, nitrogen oxides, sulphur oxides and particulate matter emissions are significantly lower than coal and oil.

 

Shipping

New International Maritime Organization standards are creating an opportunity for Tilbury Pacific to reduce emissions in B.C. and beyond by supplying ships that have switched to LNG.

In B.C., coastal freight vessels and Trans-Pacific vessels produce 70 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent each year, which is more GHG emissions than the rest of the province combined.

LNG-bunkered marine vessels can reduce their carbon intensity by approximately 20 percent when compared with traditional bunkering fuels.

Converting one ocean tanker, cruise ship or container ship to LNG from heavy fuel oil would reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 93,500 tonnes per year, which is like taking 19,800 cars off the road.
