Three times the capacity as of 2016

Through Investissement Québec, the government of Québec and Gaz Métro have partnered to increase accessibility to liquefied natural gas starting in 2016. The project to increase the LSR plant’s production capacity will help meet the growing demand for LNG in the road and maritime transportation markets, and serve regions remote from the natural gas network, especially Nord-du-Québec and the Côte-Nord. Once the project is complete, the plant’s liquefaction capacity will be tripled.

Economic and environmental benefits

Transportation and industry are the biggest greenhouse gas (GHG) emitters in Québec. A viable solution to combat climate change is to opt for liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a fuel in heavy road and maritime transportation, or as an energy source for industries in remote regions not currently served by the gas network.
