On April 13, Northern Health and B.C.’s Provincial Health Officer revised the provisions of the Provincial Health Officer’s (PHO) Order on Industrial Projects requiring workforce limits. With this change, Coastal GasLink field workforce numbers can increase to advance progress on the project through the summer under our enhanced COVID-19 Management Plan.
Our ‘Graphic of the Month’ (see the last page of the full April construction update) provides insight into planned construction focus areas in the coming months, subject to change as the Coastal GasLink team finalizes remobilization plans for the summer construction program. While project construction typically sees a slow-down during spring break-up, the Coastal GasLink team did achieve a significant milestone on March 29: the completion of 692 km of pipe delivered along the 670-km project route with zero safety incidents! Look for details on this achievement on CoastalGasLink.com soon.
With several milestones achieved on the project and more to come, Coastal GasLink continues to be vital to the long-term prosperity of the North, B.C. and Canada. Across the project, significant progress has been made to ensure the project moves through spring freshet in an environmentally responsible manner to prepare for the summer construction program. Working with our prime contractors and Indigenous and local community partners, we remain focused on delivering this project safely and efficiently.
