Coastal GasLink Pipeline
The Coastal GasLink pipeline, approximately 670 km in length, will safely deliver natural gas from northeastern B.C. to the LNG Canada facility in Kitimat. The overall project is a 48-inch pipeline with an initial capacity of 2-3 billion cubic feet per day with the potential for expansion through additional compressor stations. GeoVerra provides construction and legal survey services for Work Package 1, which is the first 140 km of the route.
When complete, this pipeline will deliver LNG (Liquified Natural Gas) from northeastern B.C. to the LNG Canada facility in Kitimat to then be shipped overseas to Asian markets, making it a significant project for both the client and the Canadian economy.
Coastal GasLink values the culture, lands and traditions of Indigenous groups and works closely with Indigenous communities across the project route. Coastal GasLink has signed project agreements with all 20 elected Indigenous groups along the approved route.
GeoVerra supports the construction and legal surveying for the first two sections of the pipeline (140 km) primarily in the Chetwynd area. GeoVerra’s survey support services for this project include:
Staking ditch line and appurtenances
Right-of-way cleanup support
The aim of the challenge was to assess the real-world performance of new methane sensing technologies in comparison with conventional optical gas imaging-based leak detection surveys.
