BC LNG Alliance congratulates band councils and Coastal GasLink pipeline on community and project agreements

September 13, 2018

Vancouver, B.C. – The BC LNG Alliance congratulates all of the elected band councils along the Coastal GasLink pipeline route and TransCanada on the work they have done together to reach community and project agreements for the proposed natural gas pipeline. The Coastal GasLink pipeline will deliver natural gas to the proposed LNG Canada project in Kitimat.

“This is a significant milestone demonstrates strong support for LNG in B.C.,” said David Keane, President and CEO of the BC LNG Alliance. “The band councils and TransCanada have worked together for years to build relationships that would allow them to reach agreements that benefit band members and their communities and this announcement is a testament to the partnerships they have formed.”

The BC LNG Alliance represents the seven leading LNG projects in B.C. Its goal is to work with First Nations, communities and government to build a sustainable, environmentally friendly and socially responsible, globally competitive LNG industry in B.C.

LNG projects in B.C. will take B.C.’s responsibly-produced natural gas and produce the lowest carbon-footprint LNG in the world. This means LNG from B.C. will go further to reducing global emissions. In turn, British Columbians will see the direct benefits of jobs, training opportunities, business opportunities and a new source of revenue for governments to help pay for the services we all enjoy including hospitals, schools, transportation, roads and public safety.
