Pacific NorthWest LNG will be supplied from natural gas developments in northeast BC. Natural gas will be transported to the site by a pipeline – the Prince Rupert Gas Transmission Project – that will be built and operated by TransCanada Corporation under agreement with Progress Energy Canada. The pipeline project is expected to cost $5 billion.
The proposed 750-kilometre pipeline will run from near Fort St. John to Cranberry River in northwest BC, then southwest to Lelu Island. The initial pipeline capacity is expected to be 2 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day, with the ability to expand to 3.6 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day.
