Pacific Trail Pipelines Project (EAO)

What was this engagement about?

Pacific Trail Pipelines Limited Partnership (the Proponent) is proposing to construct an approximately 467 kilometres pipeline that will transport natural gas from Summit Lake to a facility near Kitimat for export.

The proposed Project is subject to review under British Columbia’s Environmental Assessment Act. On June 26, 2008, the Proponent received an Environmental Assessment Certificate.

The Proponent has submitted an application to the Environmental Assessment Office of British Columbia (EAO) to amend its Environmental Assessment Certificate (Amendment Application). The proposed amendments are subject to the review under British Columbia’s Environmental Assessment Act. The Proponent is proposing amendments to:

  • Relocate compressor station to Summit Lake
  • Establish one new temporary stockpile site
  • Make minor route adjustments and route refinements


How did my contribution make a difference?

The EAO held a 30-day public comment period from February 21, 2014 to March 22, 2014 on the proposed amendments and their potential effects to ensure that these issues are identified for consideration as part of the assessment process.

Citizens were invited to comment online, by email, fax, mail or to attend an information session in Vanderhoof (Feb. 25) or Fraser Lake (Feb. 26).
