July 1, 2019 [Financial Post] – Canada’s Pieridae Energy will buy gas assets in Alberta from Royal Dutch Shell for $190 million (US$144.77 million), Pieridae said on Wednesday, securing supply for its planned liquefied natural gas plant in eastern Canada.
The deal will consist of all of Shell’s midstream and upstream assets in the southern Alberta Foothills area, which produce 29,000 barrels of natural gas, natural gas liquids and condensate. Pieridae is also buying three sour gas plants.
It will enable Pieridae to secure the remaining supply needed for the first phase of its proposed Goldboro LNG plant in Nova Scotia. If it goes ahead Goldboro will be Canada’s first east coast LNG project, producing 10 million tonnes per year.
