A new LNG project envisioned for Vancouver Island would accept natural gas via an underwater pipeline that would weave from Washington State through the Gulf Islands, according to a proposal. The Georgia Strait Crossing is a proposal to construct a pipeline to bring natural gas to Vancouver Island from "the mainland" – the continental part of southwestern British Columbia. Strong expressions of concern and opposition to the proposal are coming from farmers, residents and communities along the pipeline route, and from environmental. The natural gas pipeline project will connect Western Canada’s plentiful natural gas resources to Vancouver Island, providing natural gas producers access to international markets at fair prices, while generating economic benefits for British Columbia and Canada, helping to provide substantial investments in health, education, and other. A liquefied natural gas project planned for Vancouver Island has been halted, the latest setback for LNG proponents in British Columbia. “We’re talking about a pause,” said Nigel Kuzemko.

The project will include the construction of a pipeline to deliver natural gas from northern BC to Huu-ay-aht territory, as well as a land-based liquefaction facility in Sarita Bay and a processing plant that will treat, liquefy and store the natural gas.. Gas processed at the site will be loaded into carriers for exportation to customers, primarily in Asia. The temporary bridge will help Coastal GasLink workers access remote sections of the km natural gas pipeline project, according to a news release. The bridge – which spans feet – was given a thumbs up after Nak’azdli Whu’en’s Natural Resource Department and Chief Alexander McKinnon and council were assured it could be done. A potential rough corridor has been mapped out for a proposed pipeline that will transport natural gas across the Island to Sarita Bay near Bamfield. But a specific route has yet to be identified. A new route is needed after the original plan to have the Kwispaa pipeline travel across the Island from a facility based in Bamberton on the Saanich. Natural gas, or methane, that is created by microbes consuming organic matter. Usually found near the Earths surface and is usually immediately released into the atmosphere. Biological material from living, or recently living organisms such as trees, grasses, and agricultural crops.

A Vancouver Island First Nation says it is "deeply disappointed" that a Vancouver-based liquefied natural gas company has pulled out of a planned LNG development just months after it . FortisBC has received approval from the British Columbia Utilities Commission to increase the cost of gas for all its natural gas customers in the Mainland and Vancouver Island. As of August 1, , the natural gas bill for these customers will increase by approximately 9 per . The pipeline installation and operation will be regulated by the BC Oil and Gas Commission. Construction will include extensive use of directional drilling (particularly for water body crossings and intersections) to mitigate potential environmental impacts and . Pipeline. 2 The natural gas pipeline facilities on the mainland of British Columbia, in the Strait of Georgia and on Vancouver Island, including connected works and undertakings owned by the proponent, all as described in the proponent's application for an energy project certificate under the Utilities Commission Act, are to be known as the.
