Gaz Métro announced today that its subsidiary Gaz Métro LNG has completed its expansion project.
The expansion project 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 LNG serves various clients in the U.S. Northeast, notably National Grid's Massachusetts and Rhode Island gas distribution companies. “LNG plays an important role in meeting the needs of our customers on the coldest days of the year,” said John Vaughn, National Grid Vice President of Energy Procurement. “Demand for natural gas in New England is rising, and partners like Gaz Métro allow us to diversify our supply chain and are playing an important role by providing LNG that lets us serve customers efficiently throughout the year.”
