Background

The Pacific Trail Pipelines is part of a bigger joint venture between Chevron Canada and Apache Canada Ltd. The 463-kilometre pipeline will deliver gas from Summit Lake, B.C., to a liquefied-natural-gas (LNG) facility in Kitimat. With a capacity of 10 million tonnes per year, the Kitimat LNG plant is seen as, potentially, the first of its size in Canada to export to Asian markets. A group of Wet’suwet’en have set up a camp blocking the route of the Pacific Trail Pipelines.[3]

As of January 2019 the pipeline had received its Environmental Assessment certificate, but the investment agreement has yet to be finalized.[4]

There have been no development updates since 2014 and the project is presumed to be cancelled.
