As we enter spring and wind down our winter construction season, our crews are preparing for spring break-up, when field construction work is reduced due to soft, thawing ground conditions caused by melting snow. During this time, our workforce is focused on critical and seasonally sensitive work, while also ensuring the integrity of site conditions and that enhanced erosion and sediment control measures are in place.
Coastal GasLink continues to safely and steadily progress construction, with nearly 87% of construction complete. This includes the following recent achievements:

In March 2022, Macro Pipelines and Nadleh Whut’en’s economic development corporation partnered to construct Section 5, near Fraser Lake. As part of a commitment to provide jobs and skills training for local Indigenous people, a unique team was assembled, to ensure that people of all experience levels could expand their knowledge on Coastal GasLink. Taking on any challenge that comes their way, this team undertakes a multitude of construction tasks, such as scaffolding, environmental work and operating machinery to develop their skill sets. Once they’ve gained sufficient experience with the crew, they move into other positions, such as leads and operator positions, where they continue to advance their careers. Coastal GasLink’s extraordinary legacy is lived out every day by the tremendous efforts of the men and women working to construct this incredible project.
