A pipeline to support the liquefied natural gas (LNG) industry
Approximately 670 kilometres (416 miles) the Coastal GasLink pipeline project will safely deliver natural gas across northern B.C. After Coastal GasLink delivers the natural gas from the Dawson Creek area to a facility near Kitimat, LNG Canada will prepare it for export to global markets by converting the gas to a liquefied state – also known as LNG. Coastal GasLink will not be producing or exporting natural gas or LNG – our role is to ensure the safe transportation of natural gas. The pipeline will be built to move 2.1 billion cubic feet per day (bcf/d) of natural gas with the potential for delivery of up to 5 bcf/d, dependent on the number of compressor and meter facilities constructed.
The approved Coastal GasLink route was determined by considering Indigenous, landowner and stakeholder input, the environment, archaeological and cultural values, land use compatibility, safety, constructability and economics.
