Building a pipeline
There are many facets to the planning for a pipeline and to the regulatory process that we follow.
The Coastal GasLink project is primarily regulated under the Oil and Gas Activities Act (BC Oil and Gas Commission) and the Environmental Assessment Act (Environmental Assessment Office (EAO). The EAO process provides for the thorough, timely and integrated assessment of the potential environmental, economic, social, heritage and health effects that may occur during the life cycle of these projects. And, the process provides for meaningful participation by First Nations, the public, local governments, and federal and provincial agencies.
The BC OGC reviews and assesses applications for industry activity, consults with First Nations, ensures industry complies with provincial legislation and cooperates with partner agencies.
