Pacific Canbriam Acquires Additional Montney Lands in British Columbia

August 18, 2022 – News

CALGARY, AB — Pacific Canbriam Energy Limited (“Pacific Canbriam” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce that it has completed the acquisition of 47,025 net acres of Montney rights in the Altares, Attachie and Portage areas of northeast British Columbia. The acquisition increases the Company’s total Montney land holdings to 224,805 net acres and represents a 26 per cent increase to its total acreage.

“This land acquisition complements our existing Montney development and supports our long term LNG requirements,” says Paul Myers, president of Pacific Canbriam. “Pacific Canbriam will help supply clean, responsibly-produced natural gas for export to Asian markets.”

Pacific Canbriam is strategically positioned in northeast British Columbia to supply clean Canadian natural gas to overseas markets. This will be achieved through integration with the proposed Woodfibre LNG project located near Squamish. An industrial-zoned, deepwater site, Woodfibre was the first Canadian LNG project to commit to electrification. By using renewable hydro-electricity, Woodfibre will cut emissions by 80 per cent and become the cleanest LNG export facility in the world.
