Eagle Mountain – Woodfibre Gas Pipeline Project

As a utility, meeting the energy needs of our customers is what FortisBC does every day.

That’s why when our customer Woodfibre LNG asked us if we could deliver natural gas to them, we began to explore how and proposed the Eagle Mountain – Woodfibre Gas Pipeline (EGP) Project. And we also started talking with the community right away. The proposed Eagle Mountain Gas Pipeline will expand a portion of our existing natural gas transmission system, which was built in 1990 to serve Squamish, the Sunshine Coast and Vancouver Island.

It involves adding about 47 kilometres of new pipe, beginning north of the Coquitlam watershed and ending at the proposed Woodfibre industrial site.

Woodfibre LNG Limited will be responsible for the planning or construction of their LNG facilities.

Project overview

We’re proposing to expand a portion of our existing natural gas distribution system that was constructed in 1990 to serve the Sunshine Coast and Vancouver Island. This would involve adding about 47 kilometres of new pipe beginning in northern Coquitlam and ending at the existing Woodfibre industrial site southwest of Squamish, and constructing a new compressor station in the Squamish area.

We have a new project-focused website

Our website TalkingEnergy.ca is an interactive forum where you can learn about the Eagle Mountain-Woodfibre Gas Pipeline Project and other FortisBC projects. We’ll post your questions and our answers, along with project updates, event notices, and stories about the people behind our projects. Check it out, and be sure to sign up for our newsletter for the latest project news.

Questions? Let's talk energy.

If you have a question about this project, just ask. We look forward to chatting with area residents and local businesses about the proposed project and what it means for the community.
