LNG Canada pipeline almost 75 percent complete

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

Coastal GasLink said in a statement on September 20 announcing the completion of its Wilde Lake compressor facility that the pipeline has approached 75 percent overall completion. The overall progress reached 69 percent as of the end of July.

According to the firm, the Wilde Lake facility near Dawson Creek in northeastern BBC would serve as the starting point for the natural gas pipeline, compressing the gas to provide the pressure required to safely deliver the gas all the way to LNG Canada’s site in Kitimat.

It has the capacity to transport 2.1 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day (bcf/d) from Groundbirch, BC to Kitimat, with the potential to boost it further.

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

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.

The first phase of the giant LNG Canada project includes building two liquefaction trains with a capacity of 14 mtpa.

LNG Canada expects to deliver its first cargo by the middle of this decade.

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