LNG Labour arrangement

Recommended Posts

According to the BC government, the $40 billion LNG Canada project, if sanctioned, will use primarily Canadian labour. The company says only 5% of its construction work force of 4,500 will be temporary foreign workers (TFW), required for jobs with "unique skills." The employment strategy is in sharp contrast to the now-cancelled Pacific Northwest LNG, where TFWs were expected to account for about 70% of the workforce. LNG Canada is being led by Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE:RDS.A) who is expected to announced a decision by the end of this year.

Yep, back around 2015 I had warned repeatedly on the now defunct Oilpro forum that Petronas was planning to use a majority of non-Canadian workers for the Pacific Northwest project.

Much better for the Canadian government to enforce some "local content" rules for this new project.
