Prince Rupert students, residents learn about LNG at public seminars

Prince Rupert students and community members learned about LNG and some career options it could provide during the LNG Energy Seminar

Prince Rupert students and community members learned about liquefied natural gas (LNG), some career options and business opportunities it could provide during the LNG Energy Seminar earlier this week.

Hosted by the Province of British Columbia, the LNG Energy Seminar is being presented in communities around the B.C., which included a stop at the North Coast Convention Centre in Prince Rupert on Nov. 18 and 19.

“These seminars will connect people with the science and resources they need to understand our province’s future in natural gas development and export,” Rich Coleman, B.C.’s Minister of Natural Gas Development, said.

The LNG Energy Seminar includes a presentation by Science World British Columbia, WorkBC’s interactive Find Your Fit program, as well as information on and demonstrations by LNG-Buy BC.

A number of classes in the Prince Rupert School District attended the seminar, with students taking in the Science World Energy Show on the fundamentals of energy science and to the methods of harnessing and transporting different energy sources.

Students in Grade 6 to 10 were able to explore activity stations in the WorkBC Find Your Fit program, trying their hand at welding, carpentry, accounting and other required skills needed for in demand jobs in B.C.

Community members attending the event were able to find out how to connect with business opportunities of the industry through the LNG-Buy BC project at the initiative’s booth.
