Re-routing was done for a number of reasons including Aboriginal and stakeholder input, the environmental assessment, and improvements on constructibility.
PRGT says B.C. is a competitor in the LNG market, and the organization shares the same concerns of Petronas that the pipeline and LNG facility must be managed in a way that it’s economically viable.
In the mean time PRGT claims they will continue to work with Aboriginal groups along the route to ensure the benefits of impacted First Nations are realized. They also say they will continue to support the B.C. Oil and Gas Commission in obtaining the needed permits to start construction of the pipeline.
