Coastal GasLink concluded 2020 with significant construction milestones achieved and opened 2021 with a focus on finalizing a plan for safe remobilization in accordance with the January 12 B.C. Public Health Officer Order to help limit the spread of COVID-19. With a recently allowed workforce limit of 623 people across the 670km route in January, Coastal GasLink is focused on maintaining the integrity, safety and security of our sites and assets, as well as critical activities to meet regulatory and environmental commitments.
Lodge occupancy rates are significantly reduced in compliance with the January 12 Order, and some lodges have been closed to all but essential staff for security and maintenance. In tandem with our prime contractors, the project anticipates an incremental increase to our workforce for February, subject to approval by the Public Health Officer and relevant health authorities.
The January construction update reflects both our December 2020 progress as well as current activities and priorities for our project sections and facilities.
The long-term impacts to the overall schedule continue to be assessed. We will share updates and developments with our Indigenous and community partners, investors and business partners and our regulators.
Coastal GasLink is vital to the long-term prosperity of the North, B.C. and Canada, and we are proud to be part of a healthy economic recovery that supports local communities for the long-term including prioritizing the health and safety of our workers, their families and local communities.
