As many of us know, Canadian Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) is a big win for the environment, and big win for Canada’s economy. But Canada cannot realize our LNG aspirations without the completion of the Coastal GasLink (CGL) pipeline.
CGL is a 6.6 billion dollar project, and a necessary piece of infrastructure that will support LNG Canada’s $40 billion dollar investment for an LNG facility on Canada’s west coast.
This LNG facility will provide Canada with the capacity to export our natural gas to Asia, providing Asia with a much cleaner option to the coal that is currently being used for electricity generation. And as an added benefit, this Canadian LNG facility will produce LNG well below the global emissions average for LNG.
In Canada, CGL will create thousands of jobs during its construction phase, and will provide a large boost to economic activity in northern British Columbia.
Last but not least, Coastal GasLink has unprecedented support by all levels of government, and the support of all 20 elected First Nation’s communities along the route.
In short, Coastal GasLink checks all the boxes.
