TC Energy Completes Pipe Installations at Troubled Coastal GasLink Project

(Reuters) — TC Energy said on Monday it had installed pipes across the entire route of its Coastal GasLink project, keeping the Canadian energy firm on track to complete the work by year-end.

The 670-km (416-mile) pipeline, co-owned with private equity firm KKR and Alberta Investment Management Corp, would carry natural gas to the LNG Canada facility on the west coast of British Columbia.

The long-delayed C$14.5 billion project has been dogged by problems, including protests due to environmental concerns.

"With construction complete, we continue to progress a number of critical activities into 2024, such as clean-up, reclamation, and environmental protection activities," the company said in a statement.

Earlier this year, TC had sold a 40% interest in its Columbia Gas Transmission and Columbia Gulf Transmission pipelines to Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP) for C$5.3 billion ($3.82 billion) in a bid to raise more capital.

The company has also outlined plans to spin off its liquids pipeline business.
