Steelhead LNG is proposing to develop, finance, build, own and operate the natural gas pipeline connecting upstream resources in northeastern British Columbia and northwestern Alberta with the proposed Kwispaa LNG facility.

Proposed route corridor

Steelhead LNG is conducting early technical and environmental studies to assess a proposed corridor that would start in the vicinity of Chetwynd in northeastern British Columbia.

The corridor extends south to the Williams Lake area, paralleling the existing multi-utility corridor where practicable, then southwest to the Powell River area and underneath the Salish Sea to the Comox / Courtney area on Vancouver Island, terminating at the Kwispaa LNG site.

Steelhead LNG expects to select a pipeline route by October 2018, following completion of early studies, and Indigenous and community engagement activities.

Early engagement with Indigenous communities

Steelhead LNG is committed to meaningful engagement with Indigenous communities that could be affected by the proposed project.

Steelhead LNG and Huu-ay-aht First Nations are developing the Kwispaa LNG project through a unique co-management relationship. As part of the relationship, Huu-ay-aht is leading a traditional early engagement process with Indigenous communities to build relationships and gather feedback on potential routing options.

Expected in-service date

The targeted in-service date for the pipeline project is the fourth quarter of 2024, subject to the receipt of the necessary regulatory approvals and permits in British Columbia, final investment decision by Steelhead LNG on the Kwispaa LNG facility and pipeline project, and construction of the proposed pipeline and facilities.
