Zoom Webinar, April 21st 2021

Since 2014 GNL Québec has been developing the Énergie Saguenay Project, a natural gas liquefaction complex located on the shore of the Saguenay River in Quebec. With its capacity of 11 million tons of liquefied natural gas (LNG) per year and a $9 billion capital budget, the project will start operations in 2026.
Energie Saguenay will be 100% powered by hydroelectricity, making it the world’s first carbon-neutral major LNG production and export facility. Natural gas will be supplied from Western Canada through a new gas pipeline linking the facility to the Ontario gas transportation network. Gazoduq Inc. is the company developing the new pipeline infrastructure.
In addition to generating major economic benefits to Eastern and Western Canada, Energie Saguenay will be a major contributor to the global battle against climate change, by supplying European and Asian markets with a far less carbon-intensive source of energy than traditional feedstock, coal and fuel oil. This cleaner energy will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 28 million tons. To learn more about the project, visit www.energiesaguenay.com
The 30mn presentation will be followed by a 30mn Q&A session.
