Coastal GasLink pipeline to go ‘significantly’ over budget, says TC Energy

CALGARY — The company behind the Coastal GasLink pipeline continues to expect to go “significantly” over budget for the project and will also deliver a delayed completion date.

However, TC Energy Corp. said Tuesday it still expects the pipeline to be finished ahead of LNG Canada’s export terminal at Kitimat, B.C., which is also currently under construction.

Calgary-based TC Energy was selected by LNG Canada in 2011 to design, build, own and operate Coastal GasLink. Construction began in 2019, with an originally anticipated completion date of 2023.
