The certificate was awarded after a review by B.C.’s Environmental Assessment Office. There are 32 conditions that are part of the Environmental Assessment Certificate and all of the conditions and the certified project description are legally binding requirements that the organization must meet in order to be in compliance with the certificate.

The pipeline will require a variety of permits from the three levels of government. The Environmental Assessment Office will co-ordinate efforts with government agencies to ensure the conditions of the certificate are being met.

The project is estimated to cost $4,700,000,000 and will carry natural gas. It will be 675 kilometres long and will operate for 30 years. It’s anticipated the pipeline will have an initial capacity of two to three billion cubic feet per day with the potential to expand to five billion. It’s hoped the project will create 150 direct and indirect jobs during operations.
