TransCanada’s Coastal GasLink signs more First Nations agreements

TransCanada Corporation informed on Thursday its Coastal GasLink pipeline project signed long-term project agreements with the Burns Lake Indian Band, Blueberry River First Nations and Lheidli T’enneh First Nation. 

The agreements outline financial and other benefits and commitments that will be provided to these communities for as long as the pipeline project is in service, TransCanada said in a statement.

With these latest agreements, Coastal GasLink had in total signed nine project agreements that are “benefiting Aboriginal groups on opportunities related to B.C.’s emerging LNG industry“.

Coastal GasLink is proposing to construct and operate a 670-kilometre natural gas pipeline from the Groundbirch area near Dawson Creek, B.C. to the proposed LNG Canada liquefied natural gas export facility near Kitimat, British Columbia.
