Coastal GasLink Pipeline Route
With Coastal GasLink achieving 100% pipe installation and full completion to come by December 2023, it is important we take a look at just how positive this project has been for Canadian and Indigenous communities.
From billions of dollars spent on local businesses to long-term and well-paying jobs, CGL’s numbers show how impactful the responsible development of Canada’s natural resources can be for our communities, especially in rural parts of the country. Also see:

What is Coastal GasLink?
CGL Pipeline is Lowered into Trench
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.
