We produce a lot of natural gas in Canada, generating clean energy the world needs now and in the future. Recent global events have certainly magnified the need. Many European countries are struggling to meet their energy demands and facing worrisome shortages, especially heading into winter months.
Canada is eager to help. Whether we’re shipping our liquified natural gas to other countries – a capability Canada is working towards – or sending gas across North America to power the lives of many, we’re proud to produce energy people can feel good about using.
As Ontarians, you can feel good, too.
Natural gas plays an essential role in Ontario, accounting for 31% of total end-use demand for all sectors. Ontarians rely on natural gas to produce electricity, cook their meals, and heat and cool their homes and businesses, among other uses. Your industries rely on it, too, ranging from agriculture and fertilizers to manufacturing and transportation.
With our clean natural gas, Ontario produces goods in a world where emissions matter. Likewise, we need your goods, such as trucks, trailers, drill bits, chemicals, pumps, electrical components, and more, to help the natural gas industry thrive.
Consider Tourmaline’s recent experience with Tenaris and its Canadian manufacturing operations in Ontario. Calgary-based Tourmaline is Canada’s largest natural gas producer. In 2021, we purchased nearly $60 million of steel goods from Tenaris while Tenaris consumed approximately $10 million of natural gas. And that’s just one example of many.
Now, whether you rely on our natural gas for everyday living or to power your business, here’s why you can feel good about using our energy.
Natural gas is the cleanest-burning hydrocarbon. Plus, industry has made tremendous strides in improving its environmental performance. Canada is one of the most sustainable natural gas exporters globally and we’re dedicated to continuously lowering emissions, reducing land impacts and conserving water. In 2021, Tourmaline achieved our 25% methane-reduction target three years earlier than planned. Our vision? To produce the cleanest natural gas in the world.
Natural gas is also a reliable way to provide back-up supply for the electrical grid, filing the gap when intermittent renewables such as wind and solar aren’t available. For all those reasons and more, we call natural gas the great enabler – an energy source making life, business and progress possible.
