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.
