At least eighteen LNG liquefaction projects have been proposed in Canada to date and, while the future of some of these projects remains uncertain, it is hoped that many will proceed with development in the near future. It is expected that the majority of these projects will be developed primarily for the export of LNG to other markets, but some may also supply LNG to meet Canada’s domestic LNG demands and the LNG-bunkering sector which is being developed to serve LNG-fueled vessels operating in Canadian waters. In any case, there is expected to be an increasing number of LNG carriers and other vessels calling at Canadian ports to load LNG once these facilities become operational.

Transportation of LNG from shore-based liquefaction facilities will engage a broad range of rules and regulations in Canada governing the operation of ships in Canadian waters and, where relevant, the export of LNG. A variety of non-regulatory requirements will also apply to those involved in such activities as a result of the contractual arrangements invariably entered into when using terminals, port facilities and related services, when chartering and operating ships and when buying and selling LNG.

This webinar provides an overview of the key areas of the legal landscape, including both regulatory and other requirements, downstream of liquefaction terminals in the context of Canadian LNG projects. This will be of particular interest to those involved in Canada’s nascent LNG industry, including project proponents, buyers and sellers of LNG and owners and operators of LNG carriers and other vessels intending to load LNG, either as cargo or bunker fuel, from a terminal in Canada.
