LNG Canada pipeline almost 65 percent complete

TC Energy’s Coastal GasLink project, which will supply natural gas to the Shell-led LNG Canada export terminal, is continuing to progress with the construction of the pipeline in British Columbia.

Coastal GasLink said in its June update the overall progress had reached 64.2 percent, compared to about 62.4 percent in the prior month.

“The summer construction season is quickly ramping up, with more than 6000 women and men expected to work along Coastal GasLink’s project route at its peak,” it said.

In addition, Cable Crane Hill, one of the many special sections along Coastal GasLink’s 670 km route, has transported its first segment of pipe up the steep slope using the cable crane.

Coastal GasLink’s contractors are mobilizing crews to various sites along the project route to continue to progress Coastal GasLink’s “most important construction season yet”, the firm said.

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.

LNG Canada said in May it was reaching the 60 percent completion mark after it received a large module from China.

Also, the developer of the 14 mtpa LNG export plant in Kitimat earlier this year appointed Jason Klein as its new chief executive and said it remains on track to deliver its first cargo by the middle of this decade.

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