The Coastal GasLink pipeline project is committed to safely building and operating our natural gas pipeline — from design to construction and from operation to maintenance. We are a wholly-owned subsidiary of TransCanada Pipelines Limited, a company that has been operating pipelines i
We monitor our pipeline 24 hours a day from our gas control centre. We regularly inspect the pipeline route from the ground and the air; and we run an electronic tool called a ‘smart pig’ through the pipeline to check the condition internally.
TransCanada is an industry leader in pipeline integrity and safety. We invest hundreds of millions of dollars each year to maintain the integrity of our system. Our operators monitor our pipeline system through a centralized high-tech control centre — 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
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.
