PROPOSED NAME

The Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) value chain is varied and complex. From discovery and extraction to compression and
transportation on vessels or pipelines, LNG production requires technological innovation at every facet. Your submission
will address a technological challenge encountered along the value chain. From the use of drones to detect leaks and
monitor pipeline integrity, to computer systems that measure output and quality of product; from designing a new pump or a
compressor, to using new materials for the design and building of pipelines and vessels, the possibilities are endless. Along
with your prototype or design, you will need a poster explaining your idea. Be creative and have fun!

ELIGIBILITY RULES
To be able to participate, you and your teammates must be:

Registered at a BC public post-secondary institution

Undergraduate students

Residents of BC
Teams will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis, while also ensuring participation from post-secondary institutions
across the province.

EVENT PARTICIPATION
All selected entries will be displayed at the Vancouver Convention Centre during the 2015 International LNG Conference
where over 5,000 participants are expected. The teams will have the chance to show their innovation solutions to an
international group of experts in the LNG field. At least two team members must be able to attend the GameChanger
Competition to present their project. However, if possible, we encourage all team members to attend.

EVENT SET UP
Each team that is selected to present their project at the GameChanger Competition will be allocated a 10x10 display booth
with signage indicating their team name and school. They will also have the option to have a table in their booth, along with a
chair for each competitor and an easel for their poster. Teams can also request special display items depending on the needs
of their project.

PRESENTATIONS
Each team will have up to 10 minutes to present their project with the judging panel. Teams should be prepared to explain
their project and demonstrate how their prototype or design works. Teams are expected to engage in discussion with the
judges and answer questions about their project.
