Map shows multiple proposed oil, gas pipelines in BC’s carbon corridor

BC Pipelines

A new map (scroll down to view) reveals the full scope of oil and gas pipelines proposed to criss-cross BC. Compiled by Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition and Skeena Wild, the graphic depicts the planned routes for a staggering six new pipelines – five designed to carry natural gas to proposed liquefaction (LNG) plants in Kitimat and Prince Rupert, plus the twin bitumen and condensate Northern Gateway pipeline proposed by Enbridge. Plans for an additional six gas pipelines have yet to be formalized. While Enbridge has faced fierce opposition, the various gas pipelines have sailed largely under the radar thus far. One has already received approval – Chevron and Apache’s Pacific Trails line to Kitimat – while the others are at varying stages of design and environmental review.
