​Advocates float idea to 'future-proof' B.C. natural gas industry with hydrogen exports | Oil & Gas | JWN Energy

LNG has been called a “bridge” fuel that will help countries meet climate change objectives, because it is a lower-carbon alternative to coal for power generation. But further out, as governments choose to move off fossil fuels entirely – 2050 being one of the target dates – even natural gas could be phased out for uses such as heating.Matthew Klippenstein, a clean-tech consultant, has a novel idea for “future-proofing” B.C.’s natural gas sector: build capacity now into the nascent LNG industry to allow the province to pivot, and continue using its abundant natural gas, to produce hydrogen, instead of LNG, for export to Asia.
