Natural gas now officially clean energy for LNG


Minister of Energy and Mines Rich Coleman announced today that the Clean Energy Act has officially been amended so that LNG export facilities, and the electricity generation used to power them, are no longer required to have 93 per cent clean and renewable energy.

The province expects this to mean the industry will be able to meet the large electrical demand generated by the proposed LNG plants.

The 93 per cent clean energy target will still apply to other energy sources.
