Positive step for FortisBC’s Eagle Mountain to Woodfibre Gas Pipeline Project
SQUAMISH, B.C. – Earlier today, Woodfibre LNG Limited announced that they have secured approval to move forward with their LNG export facility, to be located near Squamish, B.C.
This is a positive step for FortisBC’s Eagle Mountain to Woodfibre Gas Pipeline project. We will continue to work on design and permitting of the pipeline to serve Woodfibre’s facility.
FortisBC’s proposed Eagle Mountain to Woodfibre Gas Pipeline project is a 47-kilometre expansion to our existing Vancouver Island natural gas transmission system to deliver gas to the Woodfibre LNG facility in Squamish. Earlier this year, the Eagle Mountain Gas Pipeline project received environmental approval from the Squamish First Nation and an Environmental Assessment Certificate from the provincial government.
We will continue our discussions with Aboriginal groups, stakeholders, and the public as the project moves forward.
