Support Fort St John News

If approved, the project would ship as much as 4.2 (b) billion cubic feet per day through a pipeline from the Cypress area (southwest of Pink Mountain) to the Ridley Island Terminal, near Prince Rupert.  The proposal now undergoes a 30-day screening stage. 

The project has been in the planning stages for the better part of three years and includes input from the aboriginal and local communities that would be impacted.  “This marks a key milestone for our project, and a step towards growing new markets for B.C.’s abundant natural gas supplies” according to Spectra President Doug Bloom.  “The application reflects detailed scientific, technical, heritage research and fieldwork.”

However, before the pipeline receives final approval, it will still need a second-round of public feedback including the thoughts of the federal and provincial levels of government.

To date, there’s been no mention of a timeline, should the project go ahead.
