World demand for natural gas is expected to increase 45 per cent by 2040, driven primarily by the rapidly expanding Asian economies. Canada’s natural gas is uniquely positioned to meet growing energy demand. Plans are underway to export natural gas to Asia in the future by building liquefied natural gas (LNG) plants on the West Coast.
Canadian marketable resources of natural gas can sustain current production levels for up to 300 years. Canadian and U.S. natural gas markets are highly integrated, with 20% of Canadian consumption coming from the U.S.
