Reuters is reporting that construction on TransCanada Corp’s Coastal GasLink pipeline will start in early 2019; pending a positive final investment decision (FID) on the linked LNG Canada project.
The pipeline is due to cost in the region of C$4.8 billion (US$3.8 billion) and measure approximately 670 km (415 miles) in length. It will cross two mountains ranges to connect rich shale fields in Alberta and northeast British Columbia with the pending LNG Canada export terminal on British Columbia’s northwest coast.
Coastal Gaslink President Richard Gateman commented: “We would be looking at constructing in the early part of 2019… We could be doing a little bit of field work in the fall (of 2018), if there’s an FID decision.”
