Supply of LNG to Squamish (near Vancouver, B.C.) by Cryogenic Enterprises, begun in 1967, had to be abondoned when the prime liquefaction facility lost its principal customer in the area (B.C. Hydro) and was shutdown. Cryogenic Enterprises is currently joining forces with Foundation Co. of Canada Ltd. to form a group known as Foundation Cryogenic Joint Venture to research the feasibility of transmitting LNG in submarine pipelines. Initially concerned with tanker loading and unloading purposes, these studies might ultimately develop techniques for transporting LNG by pipeline for considerable distances. One objective is the liquefaction of natural gas from Arctic wells for transmission by underwater pipeline to tankers or barges.
