Location: Northeastern British Columbia to Prince Rupert, British Columbia Length: Approximately 850 kilometers (525 miles) Capacity: Up to 4.2 billion cubic feet per day Partner Companies: Spectra Energy and BG Group Ownership Interest: Equal interests (50 percent) Projected In-Service: 2019 British Columbia, Canada, enjoys an abundance of natural gas resources that can serve the province and North America's energy needs, and also serve growing global demand. Developing new markets for its natural gas will benefit B.C., through job creation, investment, increased revenues, and enhanced competitiveness. In turn, markets served by B.C. will gain access to cleaner-burning, reliable and affordable natural gas. To benefit B.C. and serve multiple markets, Spectra Energy and our partner, BG Group, propose to build a 850-kilometre (525 mile) natural gas system originating from northeastern B.C. to serve BG Group's potential liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility in Prince Rupert, on the province's northwest coast. The natural gas transportation system will be capable of transporting up to 4.2 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) of natural gas. The project will provide the required natural gas transportation capacity to meet the demands of a proposed LNG terminal on B.C.'s West Coast, in keeping with B.C.'s Jobs Plan and its goal of establishing LNG facilities by 2020. The project also will connect with the Spectra Energy system at Station 2 (southwest of Fort St. John), a growing natural gas hub that collects supply from multiple areas of the province and other supply basins in Western Canada.

You are able to connect with people so easily here. It’s a progressive little town with a vibrant business community and such open minded, friendly people.
