TransCanada to build pipeline for Shell LNG proposal

TransCanaada has been selected by Shell Canada and its partners to develop the $4 billion natural gas pipeline to Kitimat.

TransCanaada has been selected by Shell Canada and its partners to develop the $4 billion natural gas pipeline to Kitimat, called the Coastal Gaslink project.

The pipeline will run from near Dawson Creek and transport gas produced in the Montney, Horn River and Cordova basins.

“Our team has the expertise to design, build and safely operate pipeline systems,” said TransCanada president Russ Girling. “We look forward to having open and meaningful discussions with Aboriginal communities and key stakeholder groups, including local residents, elected officials and the Government of British Columbia, where we will listen to feedback, build on the positive and seek to address any potential concerns.”

TransCanada has approximately 24,000 km of pipelines in western Canada, which includes 240 km in Northeast B.C.

The company said that they estimate between 2,000 and 2,500 jobs for construction over a three year period.

The initial capacity will be over 1.7 billion cubic feet of gas a day.

The in-service date is currently expected by the end of the decade.
