This new briefing shows G20 government institutions were involved in financing 82% of new Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) export terminal capacity built from 2012-2022, providing at least USD 78 billion in loans, guarantees, and equity investments for new LNG export terminal capacity projects.
As the Chancellor of Germany, Olaf Scholz, departs Canada after his first official visit to the country, there are concerns that the Canadian gas industry is trying to exploit the Ukraine war to sell LNG European countries, including Germany.

A recent critique of our GHG analysis for the proposed Jordan Cove LNG export plant is replete with baseless conjecture.
The proposed Jordan Cove LNG export terminal and Pacific Connector pipeline would be a substantial source of climate pollution for decades to come. This briefing provides an estimate of the project lifecycle emissions and provides the climate rational for rejecting the proposed project.
