The B.C. government, through the Oil and Gas Commission (OGC) and Environmental Assessment Office (EAO) approves and regulates natural gas pipeline projects through their entire lifecycle.
Coastal GasLink is committed to building and operating this $6.2-billion natural gas pipeline project in accordance with regulatory requirements, including an Environmental Assessment Certificate and permits issued by the OGC.
Routine inspections are conducted across the project through the life of construction to ensure Coastal GasLink is held accountable to the requirements designed to mitigate potential adverse effects to the environment, heritage, health, social and economic values and Indigenous interests. Where Coastal GasLink is found to be out of compliance with its permits, corrective action is taken to come back into compliance and ensure we are operating in accordance with all requirements.
