Gaz Métro’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Gaz Métro LNG, L.P., has completed its expansion project tripling the capacity of its Montréal natural gas liquefaction plant, adding a major potential source of natural gas for the New England market.
Gaz Métro LNG’s expansion project, supported by Gaz Métro and Investissement Québec, increases the annual liquefaction capacity of Gaz Métro’s Montréal plant from 3 billion cubic feet to more than 9 billion cubic feet.
“In addition to serving robust demand for LNG in the Province of Québec, we have now, more than ever, an increased capacity to deliver LNG to local distribution companies, industries, and other customers in the Northeast U.S.,” said Martin Imbleau, Senior Vice President, Operations, Transport and Development of New Energies at Gaz Métro. “Gaz Métro offers clean-burning, safe, affordable natural gas with a long and proven track record. We are the U.S. Northeast’s neighbor, and we are pleased to be able to play a more significant role as New Englanders’ energy solutions partner. ”
