Twenty countries have greater proven natural gas reserves than Canada.. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_natural_gas_proven_reserves .
Iran has 18% (Canada less than 1%) of world’ proven reserves…see http://english.farsnews.com/newstext.aspx?nn=13930228001093 “ Malaysia’s Ambassador ….voiced his country’s enthusiasm for widening.. economic, cultural and scientific domains.”
One would guess that the Malaysians will end up with great deal…given favourable gas-buying conditions..??
About 12.6 per cent of Canada’s electricity supply comes from coal, …so why aren’t these Canadian ‘CO2 producers’ being converted to natural gas–now ?
Is Premier Clark’s Malaysian export ’deal’ in accord with Canada’s Energy Export Plan…??
Or, is ‘ big oil’ still determining Canada’s pipelines,gas and oil Export Plans ..
Also, I’d expect any BC resources EXPORT deal would be subject to Federal government approval ??
