FortisBC released a video showing a visual simulation of its Woodfibre gas pipeline project.
Woodfibre gas pipeline project is currently being reviewed by the BC Oil and Gas Commission and BC Environmental Assessment Office.
If approved, FortisBC will expand a portion of its existing natural gas distribution system that was constructed in 1990 to serve the Sunshine Coast and Vancouver Island. The project will involve adding new pipe beginning north of Coquitlam and ending at the existing Woodfibre industrial site southwest of Squamish. In addition to adding new pipe, FortisBC will also need to upgrade its existing compressor stations in Coquitlam and Port Mellon, and build a new compressor station in Squamish.
