Spectra Energy Westcoast Connector Pipeline under Provincial Environmental Review

That means it has entered an extensive, 180 day review process, which includes a 45-day public comment period which will begin one week from today, on May 14th, and end on the 27th of next month.

Doug Bloom is President, of Spectra’s Canadian LNG business, and he says the application, “draws on the benefit of our nearly six decade legacy of working, living and learning from British Columbians going back to the inception of BC’S natural gas industry.

The application reportedly reflects consultation, for a natural gas transportation corridor, which would allow for up to two pipelines with a single right-of-way.

It’s an approach Spectra claims could help limit the potential environmental and local impacts during construction and operation.

Again we note, the aforementioned project is a new proposed natural gas system, which would begin in the Cypress area, and end at a proposed, Prince Rupert LNG export facility, on Ridley Island. 

It’s projected it would allow for a two pipeline design capacity, of up to 8.4 billion cubic feet per day, in the single right-of-way creating an opportunity, for multiple LNG projects, to the Prince Rupert area, with an environmental footprint, as small as possible.
