She says the ability to export our natural gas will instantly increase economic prosperity and create jobs.

The first step for the government will be to decrease the lengthy permitting process as well as improve the process for realising large-scale production facilities.

The Kitimat LNG facility would be fed from the Western Sedimentary Basin through the proposed Pacific Trail Pipeline. Gas liquefied at the plant would be transported primarily to Asian Pacific markets. Both the pipeline and the facility are expected to create 1,500 person-years of work during their construction. Once completed, the export facility will create 120-140 permanent positions.
