November construction update

Posted by Coastal GasLink

The numbers are adding up to big wins along the Coastal GasLink route. Peak pipeline construction is underway and work on our facilities continues to advance. Get all the details on progress, what’s happening along the project route and what’s to come in our November construction update. Some of the highlights include:

Additional 528 workers in the field
Our field workforce exceeded 4,000 workers in November including those constructing our natural gas pipeline and related facilities, and in the areas of engineering and environment. Information on the diverse employment and contracting opportunities can be found at

Grading underway in Section 3
In October, grading began in Section 3, with 11% of this activity now complete. Grading is also underway in six of our eight sections. Read more about grading and the other stages of construction.

Section 5 joins the pipe installation club

October saw a series of pipe installation activities begin in Section 5, while Section 4 became the first section to achieve pipe installation beyond the half-way mark at 55%.

9A Lodge welcomes 81 workers
The latest addition to our operational workforce accommodation sites is 9A Lodge. Located near the west side of Section 7, many of the workers from this location are involved in Section 8 work, which is why the 9A Lodge is reported as being part of Section 8. Learn more about our workforce accommodation sites.

Installation of 2,500 piles at Wilde Lake Compressor Station
Coastal GasLink couldn’t deliver clean Canadian natural gas to LNG Canada’s Kitimat liquefaction facility without the Wilde Lake Compressor Station, TC Energy’s largest natural gas compressor station built in a single phase, located 670 kilometres away, near the Dawson Creek area. Learn about this facility, its progress and the opportunities we’re bringing to local communities.
