BC RAC Key Areas of Focus > Energy Sector

Energy Sector

posted on 2:31 PM, January 10, 2017

The energy sector is a growing economy in British Columbia, including the expansion of natural gas and oil development. New liquefied natural gas plants are planned to be in operation along the coast of BC and an increase in the level of natural gas production is forecast for Northeastern BC. Dramatic changes in historical climate patterns will challenge the productivity of oil and gas operations through risks such as a decreasing water supply, flooding, landslides, forest fires and variable weather conditions.

BC RAC has worked in collaboration with the energy sector to increase awareness and understanding of the impacts of a changing climate, identify potential risks and opportunities, assess the sector’s ability to respond and adapt to climate impacts, and determine gaps in the information and resources available to support the energy industry.
