Coastal Gaslink plans to finish pipeline in 2023, pipe installation starting in summer
Coastal GasLink says it’s aiming to bring its liquefied natural gas pipeline online by 2023.
The company makes the estimate as it gears up for summer construction on the line running from the Fort St. John area to the LNG Canada facility being built in Kitimat.
Coastal GasLink says construction on some sections of the $6.6 billion project are ready for assembling, welding and installation and about 125 kilometres of pipe is already in the ground.
Work on the 670 kilometre pipeline has been hampered by the COVID-19 pandemic but a statement from the company says it expects good progress this summer, if the weather co-operates.
