The proposed natural gas Pacific Trail Pipeline will be a key component of the Kitimat LNG project, a joint venture between Chevron and Apache.
The project’s First Nations Limited Partnership provides First Nations with specific economic benefits including sole source contracts, skills training and employment.
Kitimat LNG will include natural gas liquefaction, LNG storage and marine on-loading facilities. Natural gas will be delivered via a pipeline lateral of approximately 14 kilometres from the Pacific Trail Pipelines, which will connect to the existing Spectra Energy Westcoast Pipeline system.
The proximity of Kitimat LNG to the existing natural gas transmission infrastructure is one of the advantages of this project and ensures supply is readily accessible to the facility.
