Energy and Natural Resources Financing for the Shale Gas Project in Canada
The Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC; Governor: Hiroshi Okuda) signed today a loan agreement totaling up to 650 million Canadian dollars (JBIC portion) with Cutbank Dawson Gas Resources Ltd. (CDGR), a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corporation (MC) in Canada. The loan is cofinanced with The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd. and Mizuho Corporate Bank, Ltd.

This loan will finance capital investments required of CDGR in connection with its subscription of 40% interest in a partnership which owns the shale gas assets in the Montney land in British Columbia, plus additional potential lands tapping the Cadomin and Doig geological formations. Encana Corporation, Canada's largest natural gas producer, is the operator and managing partner of this partnership.

Canada is endowed with vast shale gas reserves and has great potential as a new natural gas supplier for the markets in the Asia-Pacific region. The participation of MC in this project to secure gas interests in North America will contribute to Japan's energy security by diversifying the natural gas supply sources and easing the demand-supply balance in the Asian liquefied natural gas (LNG) markets.

MC is also planning to produce LNG in its production facilities that are going to be built on the western coast of British Columbia by using the natural gas produced from this shale gas project and the shale gas project in the Cordova Embayment*1, and to export the output to Japan and the Asian region. This project is expected to make Canada, which is politically stable and a relatively short distance from Japan, a new LNG supply source, thereby contributing to the diversification of Japan's LNG supply sources.

JBIC will continue to actively support Japanese businesses that promote the development and acquisition of energy resources by drawing on its various financial facilities and schemes for structuring projects, and by performing its risk-assuming functions.

Obama Administration Announces New Partnership on Unconventional Natural Gas and Oil Research
Today, three federal agencies announced a formal partnership to coordinate and align all research associated with development of our nation’s abundant unconventional natural gas and oil resources. The partnership exemplifies the cross-government coordination required under President Obama’s Executive Order released earlier today, which created a new Interagency Working Group to Support Safe and Responsible Development of Unconventional Domestic Natural Gas Resources. This new partnership will help coordinate current and future research and scientific studies undertaken by the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of the Interior – better positioning the Obama administration to ensure that continued expansion of natural gas and oil production happens safely and responsibly as part of an all-of-the-above approach to American energy in which science plays a guiding and critical role. The Memorandum of Agreement outlining this coordination is available here.
