LNG Canada pipeline almost 60 percent done

TC Energy’s Coastal GasLink pipeline project, which will supply natural gas to the Shell-led LNG Canada export terminal, has almost reached the 60 percent completion mark.

“This year, we start construction with almost 60 percent of the project completed, with Sections 1 and 4 nearing 100 percent completion,” Coastal GasLink said in an update.

According to the firm, the overall progress had reached 59.2 percent, as it continues to work towards its target completion date in 2023.

In November, it reached the 50 percent completion mark on the 670 km long pipeline.

“Most recently, we celebrated the safe completion of the Salmon River DPI water crossing with zero safety incidents. In the same construction section, we also saw the demobilization of the Vanderhoof Lodge, which at its peak housed over 869 workers,” Coastal GasLink said.

In total, 4,105 workers were working across the project route as of December 31.

The pipeline has a price tag of more than C$6.6 billion ($5.18 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 passed the 50 percent completion mark and installed the main absorber column. A large module is also on its way to Kitimat from China.

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.
