FortisBC is the owner and operator of the only two Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) facilities in British Columbia. One is at Tilbury industrial park in Delta, where the company has run part of its operations since 1971. These facilities have a variety of special features designed for the safe handling of LNG—including sophisticated monitoring, control and alarm systems. Regular maintenance and upgrading of equipment, operator training, safety equipment and continuous process monitoring ensure safe operation.
Courtney Hodson has been with FortisBC since 2008 and is now a Manager of Community Relations at FortisBC. She and her colleagues build relationships with stakeholders in government, including City of Delta, and BC communities to communicate FortisBC initiatives and project benefits. She lives in White Rock with her husband and daughter. She enjoys travelling in BC, exploring wineries, and playing golf.

After serving in communications and public affairs roles for the provincial and federal governments, Will Zylmans joined FortisBC in 2020, where he is a Community Relations Liaison with the External Relations, Major Projects group. He, too, is responsible for building relationships with government and BC communities about FortisBC projects and initiatives. Will is a long-time resident of Ladner and enjoys spending his spare time outdoors, hiking or cycling, and exploring BC.
Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is natural gas that has been cooled to such a low temperature of -162 °C that it becomes a liquid. As a fuel, LNG produces relatively low emissions. It is also odorless, non-toxic, and non-corrosive. It is a low-carbon solution to meet future energy needs.
