A massive liquefied natural gas (LNG) export project in Canada has been given the final go-ahead by project partners, LNG Canada said on Tuesday, making it the first major new project for the fuel to win approval in recent years.
TransCanada Corporation also announced Tuesday that it will proceed with construction of the Coastal GasLink pipeline project after the decision to go ahead with LNG Canada.
“Today’s announcement signifies an important step forward for Coastal GasLink as well as for the province of B.C. and the country,” said Russ Girling, TransCanada’s president and chief executive officer.
“The magnitude of the work undertaken over the past six years has been extensive. It demonstrates the commitment of our teams, our partners, B.C. communities and Indigenous groups to work together toward a single goal of fostering an LNG industry off Canada’s West Coast that will help maximize the value of our important natural gas resources in a sustainable and responsible way.”
The $6.2 billion project is a 670-kilometre (420 mile) pipeline that would transport natural gas from the Montney gas-producing region near Dawson Creek, B.C. to the LNG Canada facility in Kitimat.
First gas from the project is expected before 2025, aiming to feed an expected surge in demand for the cleaner, super-chilled fuel from hungry Asian buyers, mainly China.
