Gas buildup

The provincial government seems to be taking an increased interest in shale gas development in northeastern British Columbia. Yesterday, Premier Gordon Campbell announced a new transmission line to service the region. And, today, the government committed to spend $6 million over the next three years to "support the strategic development of shale and tight gas resources in the northeast area of B.C." According to the province's budget and fiscal plan, that expenditure will "assist in adding to BC's natural gas potential."
