The Coastal Gas Link pipeline project is 60 per cent complete, and micro tunnelling preparations near Houston are set to resume following clean up of the February 17th site attack, according to the company’s February update.

Work crews are on site and actively cleaning up the site approximately 60 km southwest of Houston. An environmental assessment is also underway following the destruction of heavy machinery.

The project recently surpassed the 60 per cent completion mark after engineering and procurement activities.

Clearing activities near Kitimat and Mackenzie have finished, and the Houston section of the project is the only area left to clear.

Decommissioning work continues at the Stuart River temporary bridge, the largest temporary free span bridge in the world, after the bridge’s main span was recently removed.

CGL is expecting more milestones this year as crews begin to complete pipe installation, with sections near Chetwynd and Vanderhood to reach that point in the coming months.

As of February 23rd, the overall project is about 60.3 per cent complete, with 3,678 workers along the route as of January 31st.
