Martin Bélanger — President, Operations & Engineering at Pieridae Energy
Pieridae Energy is a Canadian owned, fully-integrated LNG enterprise and they are looking to build a $10 billion, 10 million tonne per year LNG liquefaction facility off the East Coast near Halifax to supply natural gas to Europe. Pieridae’s has a ‘field to flange’ approach,owning conventional natural gas wells in the Alberta Foothills which will be shipped through existing pipelines systems across Canada to the Goldboro liquefaction facility on the East Coast. Unlike many North American energy projects, Goldboro is fully permitted, with all regulatory, environmental, Canadian and US import/export and construction permits in place. In addition, a benefits agreement has been signed with the Assembly of Nova Scotia Mi’kmaq Chiefs ensuring the Mi’kmaq First Nation will benefit economically from the development, construction and operation of the Goldboro LNG project. While focus has been on the prospects for LNG from Canada’s West Coast via B.C., Pieridae has flown below the radar to advance their project, focused on taking stranded gas from Western Canada east to Nova Scotia for export to premium priced European markets. Join us for a presentation by Martin Bélanger — President, Operations & Engineering at Pieridae Energy on how “Pieridae Energy is Poised To Be The First LNG Company to Market in Canada”.
