2 Nova Scotia LNG Export Projects Moving Forward

Over the past few years MDN has tracked the progress of 4 LNG export plants planned for the eastern shore of Nova Scotia. Two of those projects appear to have life–the Bear Head LNG project (see our Bear Head LNG stories here), and Goldboro LNG (see our Goldboro stories here). Why bother tracking LNG export facilities all the way up in Nova Scotia? Because they’re a huge potential market for Marcellus and Utica Shale gas. There are challenges to getting our gas there, to be sure. The Maritimes & Northeast pipeline will need to be converted to be bidirectional, and other pipelines connected to the Maritimes pipeline to flow the gas north. Those plans are in the works. However, the Marcellus/Utica, albeit the closest to Nova Scotia, is not the only game in town attracting the attention of these two projects.
