Delivering a world-class project that will provide natural gas to overseas markets wouldn’t be possible without the Wilde Lake Compressor and Meter Station.
Construction of the facility is well underway, with more than 74% of the facility construction complete. Serving as the starting point for clean, Canadian natural gas to be transported to the LNG Canada facility in Kitimat, B.C., the facility is instrumental in the safe operation of Coastal GasLink for years to come.
The facility’s construction isn’t just the building of the facility; it includes the building of community for the Wilde Lake team. Since the start of construction, the team has deepened their relationships with the surrounding communities by supporting local organisations, including the Nawican Friendship Centre and Network Ministries. Through 50/50 draws and raffles, the site team has raised over CAN$22 000 to support these organisations’ vital programs. To top it off, they recently raised an additional CAN$5000 from recycling proceeds that went towards Dawson Creek’s Junior Curling Club.
Adding to the Wilde Lake team’s successes, the three compressor buildings have been built, along with the completion of the preliminary alignment of the three compressor units. This means that the team can focus on piping and electrical work in the buildings, and finishing the last onsite welds.
Once in operation, the Wilde Lake facility will initially power the transportation of 2.1 billion ft3/d of natural gas in Groundbirch, B.C. The project has the potential to move up to 5 billion ft3/d with the addition of compression facilities along the pipeline.
In the coming months, Coastal GasLink looks forward to celebrating more milestones as the Wilde Lake Compressor and Meter Station progresses to the second last stage of facility construction with the start of hydrotesting and the final alignment of the compressor units. With the anticipated completion of one of the project’s major facilities later this year, Coastal GasLink are one step closer to delivering sustainable Canadian natural gas to help lower global GHG emissions.
