Government calls for input on onshore gas export regulations
The federal government is calling for industry feedback about what changes should be made to the onshore gas export regulations it publis바카라사이트hed last month.
Ottawa says it hopes industry will help „make sure Canada continues to be among the global leaders” in onshore gas production.
„As Canada’s우리카지노 leading gas exporter, we value the input we receive from industry,” said Environment Minister Catherine McKenna at a news conference on Tuesday. „We’re looking forward to hearing from the industry on the changes they suggest as they move forward.”
Energy Minister Peter Kent said in a statement: „The Canadian oil and gas sector, as a multi-faceted sector, has always been a great source of positive energy for all Canadians. It’s important that the government makes sure all industry voices and views are heard.”
Energy Ministry sjarvees.compokesman Jonathan Carmichael said the government does not want to create a new bureaucracy for the industry.
The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers has been pushing for better rules on onshore and offshore onshore gas export. The federation says the federal government’s proposal to limit exports to onshore areas will harm energy producers, hurt job growth and hurt the integrity of energy markets.
The proposed federal rules require onshore gas reserves to be no greater than 5 per cent of Canada’s gross domestic product. That would include some that are already licensed to be onshore or offshore.
The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers estimates the federal proposed onshore gas exports rules will mean the current onshore market will suffer a $30-billion (Cdn) loss in oil output over the next three years.
The government says the current onshore gas export regulation would „help to protect onshore economic competitiveness by ensuring that Canada is a global leader in the production and production of liquefied natural gas.”
The government wants to review those proposed onshore gas export regulations by Feb. 23, 2017. It also wants to consider the potential benefits of such onshore gas exports in the onshore marketplace.
