Factbox - Proposed LNG export terminals in Canada

(Reuters) - The Canadian government is examining new tax incentives for liquefied natural gas companies in its upcoming budget to spur gas exports, according to internal records obtained by Reuters.

The companies behind proposed terminals in British Columbia have long complained that costs are high and margins are thin when it comes to developing greenfield projects in the Pacific Coast province.

Any incentives Ottawa can offer could help companies move forward with developments, even as they clamp down on spending around the world due to the recent plummet in oil prices.

The National Energy Board (NEB) has so far approved 10 LNG export projects in British Columbia and is reviewing other proposed terminals on both east and west coasts. There are no LNG export plants in operation now and no final investment decisions have been made.

Here is an overview of some of the LNG export facilities proposed for Canada so far:

* Apache Corp said in December that it had sold its stake in the project to Woodside Petroleum Ltd.

* Kitimat LNG is unlikely to start up in 2017. A new timeline will established after a final investment decision is made.

*** The Jordan Cove Energy and Oregon LNG projects are both in Oregon, but will use Canadian natural gas and therefore need approval from Canadian regulators.
