Early construction has been suspended on TC Energy’s 670-km Coastal GasLink natural gas pipeline that will serve the planned 14-million tonne/year LNG Canada liquefaction plant at Kitimat, BC (OGJ Online, Oct. 2, 2018).

Coastal GasLink took the action voluntarily after an internal audit showed two areas where approved archaeological impact assessments were not in place before construction started.

Clearing has been halted in the areas, one measuring 600 m by 50 m and the other 240 m by 10 m.

Coastal GasLink disclosed the incidents to the British Columbia Oil and Gas Commission and Environmental Assessment Office.
