“The prime minister also noted that the business case for LNG exports from Canada’s east coast may be hampered by its distance from gas fields in western Canada. Questerre’s project in Quebec addresses this issue. Our proven discovery is within 10 kilometers of our LNG export project with permits in Becancourt and tidal access to Europe.As a producer of natural gas, we can deliver directly to the export facility. This eliminates the risk of ensuring adequate and reliable supply to meet long-term supply contracts.The company previously made final investment decisions, backed by independent reports, to advance natural gas production. business case has been established.”
