TransCanada Corporation says that the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office (EAO) has issued an Environmental Assessment Certificate for the Coastal GasLink Pipeline Project (Coastal GasLink). As anticipated, the certificate was issued with a number of conditions resulting from the assessment by the EAO of environmental, social, economic, heritage and health components deemed pertinent to the project.
"Achievement of an Environmental Assessment Certificate is a significant milestone for both Coastal GasLink and TransCanada," said Russ Girling, president and chief executive officer of TransCanada. "The scope of this application was substantial, involving thousands of hours of work to date for all involved. We appreciate the contributions and input from all those who participated in the environmental assessment process."
