Heritage Gas Presents a Natural Gas Update with Timothy M. Egan
22 October 2015
HALIFAX, NS – The Maritimes Energy Association and Heritage Gas are hosting a Breakfast Briefing with the Canadian Gas Association’s President and CEO Timothy Egan.
“Natural gas plays a very important role in the local energy mix,” says Maritimes Energy CEO Ray Ritcey. “With an abundance of natural gas resources in North America, this event is an ideal occasion to learn about the benefits of natural gas and how local companies can capitalize on the opportunities it provides.”
Mr. Egan will bring a national perspective on the value and opportunity presented as a result of the abundant supply of natural gas in North America. He will also discuss existing and proposed infrastructure to bring more natural gas to Nova Scotia and how natural gas can help meet provincial objectives.
“Heritage Gas remains very optimistic about the future of natural gas in the Maritimes,” said Chris Smith, President of Heritage Gas. “Northeast North America has enormous natural gas reserves and the forecast is for continued growth. The planned pipeline infrastructure build-outs and local natural gas storage, which Mr. Egan will highlight in his remarks, will provide direct benefits to Maritime gas customers.”
The breakfast is being held at the World Trade & Convention Centre in Halifax on October 29.
Registration is still open for the event. Please visit www.MaritimesEnergy.com to register and for more information.
