Connecting lower-carbon Canadian LNG to global markets
Spanning 670 kilometres (416 miles), the Coastal GasLink project will safely deliver natural gas from northeastern B.C. to the LNG Canada facility in Kitimat, B.C., From there, LNG Canada will prepare it for export to global markets by converting the gas to a liquefied state (LNG). Coastal GasLink’s role is to ensure the safe transportation of natural gas from exporters and producers to LNG Canada’s facility. The pipeline will deliver 2.1 billion cubic feet per day (bcf/d) of natural gas with the potential to deliver up to 5 bcf/d, through additional compression along the route.
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.
