Thorlakson's thoughts on Gas Reserves

Fort St. John’s former mayor has weighed in with some thoughts on gas reserves in Northeastern BC.

Opinion250.com spoke with Steve Thorlakson who is now the General Manager of Surerus Pipelines Ltd. He believes it will take a minimum of five years before any serious exploration will take place in the Nechako basin.

First, he says there needs to be an accurate assessment of how much gas is there and then the infrastructure is needed to get it out.

Mr. Thorlakson says the long-term answer could be a pipeline to Kitmat or Prince Rupert, which would result in the tanker shipment of the gas to the U.S.

Like many others in the industry, he calls the Montney field, which has been the focus of recent record-breaking oil and gas rights sales, a monster. However, noting that its is location between Dawson Creek and Chetwynd, he says in this case the infrastructure is nearby.
