Coastal GasLink Nears Completion of Meter Station
Coastal GasLink said December 3 it was nearly finished construction of the Kitimat meter station, at the terminus of the 670-km pipeline that will deliver natural gas to the Anglo-Dutch Shell-led LNG Canada project on Canada’s west coast.
“We began construction in June working with our prime contractor, Aecon,” metering station project manager Matthew Shanks said. “Over the past five months, we’ve worked through a lot of wet weather, held a ground-breaking ceremony in August, and made significant construction progress. In fact, we’ve now completed five of the seven stages of facility construction, finishing with pipe installation.”
The final welds (banner photo, courtesy CGL) on the station’s piping were completed near the end of November, Shanks said, and work will now pause until pressure testing is done in the second quarter next year. In the meantime, CGL will construct the powerline infrastructure for the station.
