Pacific Trail Gas Pipelines is a proposed natural gas pipeline in Canada. There have been no development updates since 2014 and the project is presumed to be cancelled.
The pipeline runs from Summit Lake, British Columbia, Canada to Kitimat, British Columbia, Canada.
- Parent: Chevron, Apache
- Proposed capacity: 1000 Million cubic feet per day
- Length: 287.7 miles / 463 km
- Status: Cancelled
- Start Year:
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.
As of January 2019 the pipeline had received its Environmental Assessment certificate, but the investment agreement has yet to be finalized.
There have been no development updates since 2014 and the project is presumed to be cancelled.
