It’s easy to take for granted how simple it is to flip a switch or turn a knob to start our stoves. But across the world, an estimated three billion people still cook with polluting fuels like kerosene, wood, charcoal and bio waste.
Canada’s abundant natural gas resources can make a big difference in addressing energy poverty. And that presents a huge export opportunity, which is a benefit for all Canadians. Let’s dig in a bit deeper.
All Canadians stand to benefit from the LNG industry in Canada. The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers estimates an annual $340 million in government revenues (corporate, personal, indirect taxes and royalties) for provincial and federal governments. Plus, there are many global benefits that natural gas can bring as the world energy mix evolves in the coming decades. It’s a critical opportunity for Canada (and the world) – and is enabled through the safe and responsible transportation provided by Canada’s transmission pipelines.
