TransCanada Receives Permit for LNG Canada Feeder Pipeline

TransCanada Corporation announced that it has received the last of the permits it needs from the British Columbia (B.C.) Oil and Gas Commission to build and operate the Coastal GasLink pipeline, a 670-kilometre pipeline that would bring gas from the Groundbirch area near Dawson Creek to the proposed LNG Canada liquefaction and export terminal near Kitimat, B.C. for export to Asian markets. According to the announcement, a Final Investment Decision by the pipeline’s customers, the joint venture partners of LNG Canada, is expected in late 2016. If approved, pipeline construction would begin in 2017.
