The application of a digital twin aggregate for an LNG liquefaction process
The application of a digital twin aggregate for an LNG liquefaction process

Process surveillance is a key aspect in achieving optimal process efficiency of the liquefaction process, mitigating the risk of unplanned downtime.  Enhanced digitalisation through the application of a digital twin aggregate provides a platform for predictive analytics that integrates process, integrity and safety virtual representations of physical processes to maximise production and reduce the risk of downtime events (Figure 1).

The role of Community Development Agreements in facilitating upstream projects
The role of Community Development Agreements in facilitating upstream projects

Natural resource development has tremendous potential to be a positive force for economic development in countries well-endowed with energy resources. The stories that most often make headlines, however, are horror stories of environmental degradation, social displacement, and, overall, resource development benefitting the few at the expense of the many. Rethinking corporate social responsibility is key to changing this narrative, and community development agreements (CDAs) provide a promising way forward.

Chinese demand for gas, LNG 'almost infinite'
Chinese demand for gas, LNG 'almost infinite'

China's impressive investments in renewable energy and electric vehicles have led some anti-fossil fuel activists, as well as some economists, to warn that new pipelines and LNG plants in Canada could become stranded assets. The fear is that China will decarbonize to such an extent that it won't need Canadian oil or natural gas. But Yao Li, CEO of Chinese energy consulting firm SIA Energy, said May 21 at the annual Canada Gas and LNG Conference that China's demand for LNG is “almost infinite.”

LNG Canada sets example, says First Nations leader
LNG Canada sets example, says First Nations leader

Getting a multibillion-dollar liquefied natural gas (LNG) project built in Canada is no cakewalk. Just ask Petronas, which abandoned its plans for a $36 billion LNG plant and associated pipeline in Prince Rupert in 2017. After Petronas bailed, the prospect of a B.C. LNG industry seemed to evaporate, as it and other projects missed critical contract windows and then got hit by a major plunge in oil and LNG prices.

MOFs enter the oil and gas fields
MOFs enter the oil and gas fields

In 2018, framergy piloted its large-scale Light Hydrocarbon Management System (LHMS) unit, loaded with metal-organic frameworks. These crystals, often called MOFs, have the highest surface area of any material known to man. One gram of MOF, about the size of a penny, has the same surface area as a football field. This means that molecules which are both valuable energy and destructive pollutants can be stored, separated and used to maximum benefit.

Supply chain: The biggest lever your business has not yet pulled
Supply chain: The biggest lever your business has not yet pulled

For years the oil and gas supply chain has been navigating a complex system of manual and lengthy processes. Procurement can be slow, often with long lead times. There is little industry collaboration and poor management of asset data and information, and cash is being held in redundant or surplus material.

BC Oil and Gas Commission provides expertise on all aspects of LNG in British Columbia

The Province of British Columbia (B.C.) is well positioned in Canada to provide clean energy to global markets. The province is endowed with abundant supplies of natural gas and we can ship it to Asia in the form of LNG faster than virtually anywhere else in North America.

Building relationships with Indigenous peoples and social license to operate

Gaining the social license to operate is imperative to the overall success of gas and LNG projects. Across Turtle Island, also known as North America, we have seen what happens when Indigenous peoples do not feel they have been adequately consulted or have not consented to projects that will take place on or affect their traditional lands and territories.
