TransCanada Corporation to hold Open Houses on Prince Rupert Gas Transmission Project

The next step towards providing for a pipeline to carry Natural Gas to any potential export terminals is set to get underway later this month, as the TransCanada Corporation prepares for two Open Houses on the North Coast.

Port Edward residents will have the opportunity to learn more about the proposed route and discuss the nature of the project with TransCanada representatives on May 22nd, when the Open House is held at the Port Edward Community Centre from 6 PM to 8:30 PM.

Prince Rupert residents will have the same opportunity on May 23rd, when TransCanada sets up their Open House at the Lester Centre for the Arts from 5 until 8 PM.

The Open Houses on the North Coast are but two of a total of 7 that stretch from Fort St. John along Highway 97 and Highway to the coast. At each stop along the way, staff from the  Prince Rupert Gas Transmission Project will give a presentation and will answer questions as well on any topics of concern regarding the proposed pipeline.

The pipeline if constructed, will bring Natural Gas from the Hudson's Hope region of the province, to the proposed Petronas/Progress LNG facility on Lelu Island.

Pending regulatory approval, construction is anticipated to start in 2015 with a completion date and start of service to be the end of 2018.
