Coastal GasLink conducted extensive environmental and engineering field studies in 2013, and these programs are continuing in 2014. Our field programs support the definition and design of the pipeline route and the preparation of permitting and regulatory applications. Environmental
The environmental field program is focused on fisheries and aquatics, wildlife, soil, vegetation, wetlands, archaeology, hydrology and terrain. The studies are being conducted by scientists and trained field workers, collecting information to support the environmental assessment and
The Coastal GasLink engineering studies involve executing field programs to gather site information in support of Project planning and construction. Engineering field studies will collect information on bedrock contours, subsurface soil conditions, slope stability, watercourse charact
Coastal GasLink Pipeline Limited proposes to build an approximately 670-kilometre pipeline from the Dawson Creek area to the west coast of B.C. The pipeline will transport natural gas to the proposed LNG Canada facility near Kitimat.
The proposed Coastal GasLink route, as presented in our 2014 application to the BC Environmental Assessment Office, was determined by considering Aboriginal, landowner and stakeholder input, the environment, archaeological and cultural values, land use compatibility, safety, constructability and economics.
