A 75km pipeline under the Salish Sea will be used to deliver natural gas from Washington state to the proposed liquefaction facility at Bamberton, and another pipeline will carry gas over land from Bamberton to Sarita Bay near Port Alberni.

Vancouver-based Steelhead LNG has partnered with pipeline developer Williams to get natural gas to two proposed facilities on Vancouver Island, it announced Tuesday.

The Island Gas Connector Project would transport the gas undersea from Washington State to the proposed Malahat floating natural gas liquefaction and export facility. From there it would travel through a land-based pipeline to the proposed Huu-ay-aht First Nations LNG facility at Sarita Bay, 75km southwest of Port Alberni.

MY COWICHAN VALLEY NOW – New pipeline proposed to bring gas to Malahat/Steelhead LNG project

Sean Eckford — September 2, 2015

The LNG project being proposed for the Malahat First Nation’s Bamberton property will get its natural gas from a new pipeline.

Steelhead LNG says it’s going to work with the US based company Williams on the Island Gas Connector, which will bring gas from Washington State, under the Salish Sea and past Salt Spring Island to Mill Bay.

It’s a total length of about 128 kilometres.

Steelhead CEO Nigel Kuzemko says they found the current Fortis pipeline to the Island doesn’t have enough capacity (Fortis is already planning an expansion of part of that line for the Woodfibre LNG project in Howe Sound).

VICTORIA — I’ve spent 25-plus years working with major extractive projects around the world, helping them to engage and collaborate with local communities and address local concerns, to earn and maintain a “social licence” and align community and shareholder interests.

Last week, a major LNG project was announced for my backyard, four kilometres from my home on Vancouver Island and right beside the spot where I love to catch prawns and crabs with my little boat.
