Nearly 1,000 working on Coastal GasLink as first segments of pipe delivered

The first segments of pipe for the Coastal GasLink project begin to arrive at storage sites this week in anticipation of construction ramp up later next year, TC Energy reported on Tuesday.

The $6.6-billion pipeline, which will provide the natural gas feed for the $40-billion LNG Canada project, will stretch 670 kilometres from the Dawson Creek area in Northeast B.C. to the coast at Kitimat.

TC Energy said that starting in December 2019, pipe will be transported by rail and truck and stored at sites across the project route until it’s needed for assembly and installation. That phase of construction is expected to start next summer and continue through to 2022.

Initial deliveries are planned for the Chetwynd and Kitimat area. Deliveries to other areas across the route will continue through April 2021, the company said.

“With construction progressing on the Coastal GasLink Project, we are committed to delivering economic benefits across the province. With more than $1 billion in employment and contracting opportunities for Indigenous and local communities, significant benefits are already being realized across the project right-of-way,” TC Energy said.

“In fact, nearly 1,000 women and men are currently working on the project to make sure we are ready for mainline construction in 2020.”
