Coastal GasLink has surpassed 70 per cent overall completion and many of our sections continue to make significant progress on construction activities. With Section 4 complete, the Vanderhoof Lodge site, which at its peak was home for more than 800 workers, was decommissioned in 2021 and will soon be transformed into nearly 48 acres of viable farmland. Following through on our commitments to the District of Vanderhoof, the site is undergoing extensive reclamation work to establish and restore agricultural productivity with the help of tillage radishes. Learn more about reclamation, the final stage in overall pipeline construction.
Affectionately referred to as the beating heart of the Project, the Coastal GasLink team came together on September 20th with workers, partners, Indigenous and local community leadership, and many others to commemorate the upcoming mechanical completion of the Wilde Lake Compressor Facility. The Wilde Lake facility will serve as the starting point for the natural gas pipeline, compressing the gas to provide the pressure required to safely deliver the gas all the way to LNG Canada’s site in Kitimat.

Welcome to the Headwall! This incredible steep slope, part of Section 2 of Coastal GasLink, traverses severe mountainous terrain and has been one of the many feats of engineering to date on the project. Great detail goes into planning the safe execution of constructing on a steep slope by ensuring that safety is placed at the forefront every step of the way. If you look closely at the bottom left of the photo, you can see that construction crews created a path to safely access this steep terrain through a combination of blasting, grading and excavating. Together, the team is truly building an extraordinary construction legacy as they bring their significant experience to this complex section of the project.
