Alberta today has abundant supplies of natural gas to fuel large scale gas conversion developments for decades. In addition, Alberta has well developed existing energy and transportation infrastructure, making it easy to interconnect the gas conversion facility with this abundant natural gas supply, and making it easy to move the product to market. All factors considered, Alberta is the right place for the development of a gas conversion industry, adding value to Alberta’s natural gas resources by upgrading this resource into high-value clean energy products.
In addition to creating a new industry with the associated jobs, investments, and tax revenues, the gasoline production from the GCF Facility will diversify gasoline supply in Alberta and western Canada, helping to meet the demands of its growing economy. This new gasoline supply will contain no sulphur which will reduce harmful tailpipe emissions and improve air quality.
