To bring Canadian natural gas from northeastern British Columbia and northwestern Alberta to the proposed Malahat LNG facility on Vancouver Island, Steelhead LNG is working with Williams (Northwest Pipeline LLC) to determine the feasibility of building and operating a natural gas pipeline called the Island Gas Connector (IGC) Project. The estimated 129 kilometre pipeline system would begin in the United States and end in Canada. The land portion of the proposed IGC Project would run approximately 53 kilometres from Northwest Pipeline’s interconnect with Spectra Energy’s Pipeline system at Sumas, to the Birch Bay/Custer area in Washington. Part of the proposed IGC Project – approximately 75 kilometres – would be placed on the ocean floor in the Salish Sea between Washington State and the proposed Malahat LNG facility on Vancouver Island.
