Petronas says it remains committed to Canadian LNG project

Malaysia's Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas) PETR.UL said it is committed to its Canadian liquefied natural gas (LNG) project despite the tumble in oil and gas prices which has hurt the state-owned oil company's profitability. The project would see Petronas build an export terminal near the British Columbia port city of Prince Rupert, a natural gas pipeline and ongoing gas development. Petronas had reached a deal with British Columbia in May on the proposed project, drawing it closer to its final investment decision. "Petronas would like to reaffirm its commitment to deliver long term LNG supply to its customers through the Pacific NorthWest LNG project in Canada, despite the current market volatility for oil and gas," its chief executive officer for Upstream, Wee Yiaw Hin, said in an emailed statement.
