Federal Environmental Assessment required for pipeline near Dawson Creek

The draft Environmental Impact Statement Guidelines are available for review online and are available for download below.

The approximately 650 kilometre proposed pipeline would initially have the capacity to flow approximately 1.7 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day. With further expansion, it could deliver up to approximately 5.0 billion cubic feet per day.

As Groundbirch is only 40 kilometres west of Dawson Creek, this proposed project will have an effect on the Peace Region.
