Fact: While it may be technically possible, Coastal GasLink has no plans to convert the proposed pipeline to anything other than natural gas transportation service. Coastal GasLink will also be bound by contract to provide natural gas for a minimum of 25 years, with numerous options to renew this service. The LNG Canada facilities, to which the pipeline will deliver natural gas, have no need for oil; they and the upstream natural reserves represent a significant capital investment and are expected to operate for well in excess of 25 years.
All of our studies, the design, and construction are planned for natural gas transportation; there are no plans to convert this line to any other use. In addition, any future change to the use of the pipeline is subject to regulatory approval, including full consultation with government, local communities and First Nations.
