What is Coastal GasLink?

Coastal GasLink is a long-distance transmission pipeline that will safely transport natural gas from production reservoirs in Northeastern B.C. to LNG export facilities on the West Coast.

CGL will initially deliver 2.1 billion cubic feet per day (bcf/d) of natural gas with the potential to deliver up to 5 bcf/d, through additional compression along the route. The pipeline is set to deliver natural gas feedstock to the LNG Canada and Cedar LNG projects for liquefaction and export.

Global Natural Gas Demand is Growing

With growing global natural gas demand for decades to come, CGL will play an essential role in helping Canada supply the world with the energy it needs.

Natural resource projects like Coastal GasLink help underpin Canadian and Indigenous prosperity, global energy security, and climate action.

As long as the world needs natural gas, it should come from places like Canada – with world-class protections for human rights and the environment.
