Apparently there is concern that there will not be enough Low Sulfur fuel to go around, hence the push for LNG fueled ships

No coincidence that BC has Natural Gas, intends to use Natural Gas and intends to export Natural Gas ..... in competition with Oil from Alberta.

Oil which also competes with Coal exported by BC.

Coal exports are way up, a lot of our coal is for filters and coking. In fact Ridely Terminals is planning a 2nd berth to load LPG. I recently approved a LPG loading arm on their existing coal berth, but they forsee usage conflicts. 1 other LPG loading terminal is underway up there (Pembina) and another proposed (Vopak). also rumour of a LPG terminal in Kitimat as well, along with LNGCanada underway with one final FID to go.

I'm thinking that China just might just be driving some of that coal demand: https://www.indexmundi.com/energy/?product=coal&graph=consumption&display=rank

I assume they use environmentalists to spark the coking ovens...

Retired and unemployed Europeans don't need coal.  The Chinese might as well have it.
