LNG Canada pipeline almost 58 percent complete

TC Energy’s Coastal GasLink pipeline project, which will supply natural gas to the Shell-led LNG Canada plant, has almost reached the 58 percent completion mark.

Coastal GasLink said in an update the overall progress had reached 57.7 percent, as it continues to work towards its target completion date in 2023.

It recently reached the 50 percent completion mark on the 670 km long pipeline.

“On December 3, we celebrated our most recent milestone — the fabrication and delivery of all the pipeline assemblies to our storage facilities,” Coastal GasLink said.

“In total we shipped thirty-one 48-inch block valves along with associated assembly piping, 259 3D elbows, and 87 test heads and caps. This equated to over 100,000 factored weld-inches completed, or over 250 truckloads of material assembled,” it said.

The pipeline has a price tag of more than C$6.6 billion ($5.11 billion). However, Coastal GasLink and LNG Canada previously said they were in commercial discussions regarding the cost and schedule for the project.

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 LNG Canada facility in Kitimat, British Columbia.

LNG Canada also recently passed the 50 percent completion mark and installed the main absorber column.

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

LNG Canada expects the first LNG shipment from the first phase of the plant, which includes two trains with a capacity of 14 mtpa, in the middle of the decade.
