LNG Canada pipeline 69 percent complete

TC Energy’s Coastal GasLink project, which will supply natural gas to the Shell-led LNG Canada export terminal, is moving forward with the construction of the pipeline in British Columbia in order to complete it in 2023.

Coastal GasLink said in a update the overall progress had reached 69 percent as of the end of July, compared to about 64.2 percent in the prior month.

“With our workforce at peak numbers, July marked an exciting month as the Wilde Lake compressor station surpassed 90 percent overall completion, and Coastal GasLink is nearing 70 percent overall construction completion,” it said.

“Hydrotesting was a focus for crews at Wilde Lake, and Sections 1 and 2. Significant progress has been made this month to advance construction on Cable Crane Hill in the Coast Mountains and access to the Headwall in the Rocky Mountains,” Coastal GasLink said.

In July, LNG Canada and TC Energy reached a revised deal for the pipeline. The project now has a price tag of C$11.2 billion.

TC Energy expects to reach mechanical in-service by the end of 2023.

Coastal GasLink will move at least 2.1 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas with the potential for delivery of up to 5 bcf/d from the Dawson Creek area to the 14 mtpa LNG Canada facility in Kitimat.

The giant LNG Canada project is now more than 60 percent complete.

Besides Shell, LNG Canada partners include Malaysia’s Petronas, PetroChina, Japan’s Mitsubishi Corporation and South Korea’s Kogas.
