Current large-scale natural gas projects
To serve our growing numbers of residential and commercial natural gas customers, we continually invest in our system to add capacity and increase the functionality and reliability of our services.
Eagle Mountain - Woodfibre Gas Pipeline Project
The proposed Eagle Mountain - Woodfibre Gas Pipeline Project project would expand the existing natural gas pipeline that runs between Coquitlam and Woodfibre, near Squamish.
If the project moves forward, we’ll be adding about 47 km of new pipe, beginning north of the Coquitlam watershed and ending at the Woodfibre industrial site, where our customer Woodfibre LNG is proposing to build a modestly-sized liquefied natural gas (LNG) processing and export facility.
FortisBC Gas Line Upgrades
Construction has begun to replace about 20 kilometres of natural gas line that runs between our Coquitlam Station and our station at East 2nd Avenue and Woodland Drive in Vancouver. This work will make sure our customers continue receiving the reliable natural gas they count on in their homes and businesses every day.
Tilbury LNG Facility Expansion
We’re exploring future enhancements for our Tilbury LNG storage facility in Delta, BC, to meet the projected long-term demand for LNG as a cleaner transportation fuel.
Proposed projects include a new 230 kV power line connecting Tilbury to BC Hydro’s Arnott substation in Delta, and a jetty that would make it easier for local and international customers to access LNG from Tilbury.
Inland Gas Upgrades
We’re planning to upgrade 29 sections of our existing natural gas lines located in the Northern, Thompson-Okanagan, Cariboo and Kootenay regions of BC. These upgrades will allow us to use modern inspection methods to monitor the line.
These Inland Gas Upgrades, combined with our ongoing inspection and maintenance activities, will make sure these lines continue to provide safe, reliable service for many years to come.
