Macquarie Energy Canada Ltd., using a virtual market, is expanding the ethically produced natural gas trade, aka responsibly sourced gas (RSG), with the sale of British Columbia (BC) production to Montreal-based distribution company Energir. The Macquarie unit used… the Xpansiv Digital Fuels Registry to make the deal for supplies from Calgary-based gas producer Pacific Canbriam Energy Ltd.

The digital registry “is an important innovation that establishes unprecedented levels of transparency and detail, which will further catalyze the certified natural gas market,” said Macquarie senior managing director Craig Fisher.

“The certification marks the beginning of a new, more transparent era of natural gas development in Canada where we show the world that resources are, and will continue to be developed to the highest standards of environmental and social responsibility,” said Pacific Canbriam President Paul Myers.
