LNG Canada project, a joint venture with PetroChina, Mitsubishi and Korea Gas is planned for BC's N coast at Kitimat

Mitsubishi and KOGAS had each owned 20% of the project. They now own 15% each, while PetroChina maintained its 20% interest

Canada is a free, democratic neighbor that we can and should work with to achieve energy independence from OPEC and other exporting countries around the world that HATE us.
