The $5.1 billion, 750 kilometre line has a proposed initial capacity of two billion cubic feet per day. If approved, construction is expected to begin in 2015, with the pipeline in service by the end of 2018.
Prince Rupert Gas Transmission is a wholly-owned subsidiary of TransCanada Pipelines Limited, which has a second pipeline proposed to Kitimat – the Coastal GasLink project.
