CEAA Invites Public to Comment on Prince Rupert Gas Transmission Project (Canada)
As part of the strengthened and modernized Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012 (CEAA 2012) put in place to support the government’s Responsible Resource Development Initiative, the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency must decide whether a federal environmental assessment is required for the proposed Prince Rupert Gas Transmission Project located in British Columbia.
To assist it in making its decision, the Agency is seeking comments from the public on the project and its potential effects on the environment.
Prince Rupert Gas Transmission Ltd. is proposing to construct and operate a natural gas pipeline from a point near Hudson’s Hope, BC, to the proposed Pacific NorthWest LNG export facility near Prince Rupert, at Lelu Island, within the District of Port Edward, British Columbia. The proposed project involves the construction and operation of approximately 750 kilometres of 48 inch diameter pipeline, metering facilities at the receipt and delivery points, and two compressor stations with provisions for up to six additional compressor station sites to allow for future expansion.
