Environmental Review Underway For Gas Pipeline To Kitimat, BC

May 2014, Vol. 241, No. 5

Coastal GasLink filed an environmental assessment application that is now in a 180-day public review period for the proposed 400-mile Coastal GasLink project.

The line would feed an LNG plant proposed by a joint-venture company led by Shell, along with Korea Gas, Mitsubishi and PetroChina. The LNG plant and export terminal is undergoing its own environmental assessment.

The estimated $4 billion pipeline would begin in the town of Groundbirch, between Dawson Creek and Chetwynd. It would go south and west in a relatively direct line, crossing Highway 97 just north of McLeod Lake, then angle north of Eskers Park. From there it would veer almost directly west going north of Vanderhoof, along the north shore of Fraser Lake, south of Burns Lake and Houston to Kitimat, British Columbia.
