A British Columbia conservation group says proposed liquefied natural gas plants in the Kitimat area will burn up to two-and-a-half times more natural gas than is consumed in Metro Vancouver annually. The report, released by SkeenaWild Conservation Trust, says just three proposed plants in the district on B.C.’s northern coast will collectively burn 60 per cent of all the natural gas consumed annually in B.C. The B.C. Liberal government has said the LNG industry in the province will be the cleanest in the world, but the report says the Kitimat plants will produce a carbon footprint three times larger than other LNG plants currently operating.
