Upon completion of the terminal, North American natural gas supplies are to be transported to Goldboro, Nova Scotia, using existing pipelines and exported by ship to international markets. The Partnership will focus on securing and developing natural gas assets onshore Atlantic Canada and the eastern United States for the Goldboro terminal and, upon completion, the Partnership’s production and reserves are to be dedicated to the facility.

This is an exciting new platform for Contact to expand and diversify its opportunity portfolio. We are ideally positioned to source and develop long-term sustainable feedstock for the proposed Goldboro LNG Terminal by leveraging our long-standing history in Atlantic Canada and our tight gas expertise from Western Canada.
