Squamish Nation approves Woodfibre LNG feeder pipeline

Squamish First Nation approved the environmental assessment agreement for the proposed pipeline that will supply natural gas to the Woodfibre LNG project.

The Squamish Nation chiefs and council voted to approve the environmental assessment agreement for the proposed Eagle Mountain – Woodfibre Gas pipeline project and issued an environmental certificate to FortisBC.

Woodfibre LNG said in its statement that Squamish Nation conducted an “independent environmental review” of the project. The First Nation also approved the use of the Mount Mulligan location near Squamish for FortisBC’s natural gas compressor station. It has already approved the Woodfibre LNG project in October last year.

The Eagle Mountain – Woodfibre Gas pipeline project is an expansion of FortisBC’s existing Vancouver Island natural gas transportation system to provide natural gas service to the Woodfibre LNG project. The project includes building about 47 kilometres of pipeline between Coquitlam, British Columbia and the Woodfibre LNG site.

The Woodfibre LNG project is a proposed natural gas liquefaction and export facility located at the former Woodfibre Pulp and Paper Mill, about seven kilometres southwest of Squamish.

The project is expected to start production in 2020 with an annual capacity of approximately 2.1 million tons of liquefied natural gas.
