Hemmera and the LNG-Buy BC Program

Hemmera recently participated in the LNG in BC conference and tradeshow in Vancouver, BC. In this featured video and press release, Business Leader Jonathan Turner speaks about the positive experience and the LNG-Buy BC Program.  “A tradeshow booth at the LNG conference provided great exposure to leaders in the LNG and pipeline industry and will help us further support those companies that are working to get a pipeline or facility permitted and constructed in a sustainable manner. The fact that we’ve been able to work with a number of international clients who are looking to build projects in B.C. demonstrates that LNG proponents are looking to hire local first.”
