If Spectra is building a pipeline to export through a British Columbian Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) port, what are they building this Sabal Trail Transmission pipeline for? Could it have anything to do with the U.S. House Subcommittee chaired by Spectra’s Houston hometown Rep. Ted Poe wanting to export gas to India?
Spectra’s own web page about this, Spectra Energy and BG Group Natural Gas Transportation System:
British Columbia, Canada, enjoys an abundance of natural gas resources that can serve the province and North America’s energy needs, and also serve growing global demand. Developing new markets for its natural gas will benefit B.C., through job creation, investment, increased revenues, and enhanced competitiveness. In turn, markets served by B.C. will gain access to cleaner-burning, reliable and affordable natural gas. To benefit B.C. and serve multiple markets, Spectra Energy and our partner, BG Group, propose to build a 850-kilometre (525 mile) natural gas system originating from northeastern B.C. to serve BG Group’s potential liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility in Prince Rupert, on the province’s northwest coast.
