Phase 2


Coastal GasLink – together with LNG Canada – has an opportunity to leverage existing infrastructure from the soon-to-be-completed Phase 1 project to safely deliver even more low-emission Canadian-made LNG to the world.

Phase 2 refers to the development of six additional compressor stations, which would double the capacity of Coastal GasLink without requiring additional pipeline to move natural gas. It would create high quality jobs and contracting opportunities for Indigenous and local communities across British Columbia, while supporting the global transition away from coal to secure, democratically-produced, low-emission energy.


Project details

Phase 2 would involve the construction and operation of:

  • An additional compressor unit and additional meter runs at the existing Wilde Lake facility, located near Dawson Creek;
  • Additional separator at the existing Kitimat Meter Station and metering facilities at the planned LNG Link Meter Station (located within the LNG Canada facility);
  • Compressor stations at six locations located at regular intervals along the existing 670 km route.



Working with Indigenous and local communities

Phase 2 engagement with Indigenous groups, landowners and local communities is ongoing. While Phase 2 was included in the original Environmental Assessment Certificate, it requires additional permits and approvals from the BC Energy Regulator, BC Environmental Assessment Office, and local governments. In 2024, continued engagement with Indigenous groups and stakeholders would continue as Coastal GasLink undergoes detailed design, engineering, and pre-construction planning in support of a future financial investment decision.

With LNG Canada and Coastal GasLink operating at full capacity (including Phase 2), the projects would be a major contributor to provincial and federal revenue streams, helping support critical services like healthcare and education. Once operational, Coastal GasLink would provide more than $26 million in property taxes every year to local communities.
