The multinational companies include Nexen, Imperial Oil/ExxonMobil, Korea’s SK E&S, and Woodside Petroleum of Australia. They are now added to a list that already includes Shell, PetroChina, Chevron Canada, BG Group and Petronas.

The four new LNG proponents emerged in response to a February provincial call for expressions of interest to situate facilities on Crown land at Grassy Point, north of Prince Rupert.
