LNG seminar set to chart course to Prince Rupert in November
While the time lines for development may be flexible and the proponents looking to be prudent, the province is still pushing forward with its plans to prepare the province for an LNG future.
Towards that theme, the BC government is hosting seven interactive community seminars across the province, with the Northwest set to host two of them in November.
On November 9 and 10, the caravan will pull into Terrace, with Prince Rupert the destination for November 18 and 19.
The Terrace sessions will take pace at the Best Western Terrace Inn and when the project travels the extra ninety minutes down highway 16, it will set up shop at the North Coast Convention Centre, part of the Chances complex on 1st Avenue West.
Those that attend the two day event, will have an opportunity to learn some basic facts about natural gas development and take part in a range of activities.
Representatives from Science World are participating in the tour, offering seminars and presentations on the fundamentals of energy science.
Young adults in attendance will be able to explore more on LNG with the government and industry representatives on hand, as well as to take part in an interactive event called Find Your Fit.
That portion of the two day event will allow students from Grade 6 to 10 to get hands on experience with the skills required for the types of jobs that could be available across the province, should the LNG ambitions take off.
