Gaz Métro and Investissement Québec recently entered into a partnership to increase production of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in Montréal. Gaz Métro is now seeking to establish regional partnerships to export its resources.
Gaz Métro is a leading Québec energy provider also present in Vermont, where it distributes natural gas and produces and distributes electricity to meet the needs of more than 305,000 customers.
Through its subsidiary Gaz Métro LNG, Gaz Métro now sells liquefied natural gas (LNG) to businesses across the northeastern United States. The company’s LNG comes from Gaz Métro’s existing liquefaction, storage and regasification (LSR) plant in Montréal, Québec. This plant, in operation for 45 years, can produce up to 3 billion cubic feet/year. The plant has a loading dock which is used to supply tanker trucks that then supply refueling stations for transportation companies, industrial plants and local distribution companies’ storage plants.
Three times more capacity in 2016
The government of Québec and Gaz Métro have become partners to increase accessibility to liquefied natural gas starting in 2016 in order to meet part of the growing demand for natural gas in North America. Production capacities will be tripled (more than 9 billion cubic feet/year) and available starting in the fall of 2016.

Gaz Métro LNG offers a complete, transparent and stable price structure based on a simple supply chain. U.S. local distribution companies can take advantage of a comprehensive solution that includes:
