Coastal GasLink Pipeline Limited proposes to build an approximately 670-kilometre pipeline from the Dawson Creek area to the west coast of B.C. The pipeline will transport natural gas to the proposed LNG Canada facility near Kitimat.
Our initial study corridor was established based on a preliminary assessment of terrain, environment, social aspects and constructability, and through engagement of landowners, Aboriginal communities and the public. Through 2013, we focused our engineering and environmental field programs in this study corridor, including traditional ecological knowledge gathering and traditional land use studies. We shared information, gathered input and incorporated feedback into our decision making and route refinement process, engaging with Aboriginal communities, landowners and stakeholders throughout the process.
The proposed Coastal GasLink route, as presented in our 2014 application to the BC Environmental Assessment Office, was determined by considering Aboriginal, landowner and stakeholder input, the environment, archaeological and cultural values, land use compatibility, safety, constructability and economics.
The project, which was announced on June 5, 2012, would involve construction with 48-inch (NPS 48) (1219 mm)-diameter pipe, in addition to the construction and operation of up to three meter stations and one compressor station. The initial capacity would be approximately 2-3 bcf/day.
