Throughout the 18 months of consultation and field studies, we continuously refined the proposed route, taking into account feedback from Aboriginal groups and stakeholders such as communities and landowners.
The proposed route reflects our ongoing commitment to minimizing disturbances to the environment, waterways and culturally sensitive areas. It provides a degree of certainty to communities along the route and confirms that, should approvals be received, the presence of the pipeline will generate substantial benefits to those along the route for many years to come. It is important to note that further small refinements of the route are possible as we continue discussions.
On Nov. 25, the Ministers of Environment and Natural Gas Development issued an Environmental Assessment Certificate, which allows the natural gas pipeline project to move ahead pending a final investment decision from Petronas and receipt of a construction permit from the B.C. Oil & Gas Commission.
PNW LNG will be in a position to make a commercial decision whether or not to proceed with the project in June this year, but a positive final investment decision will be subject to both PNW LNG and PRGT receiving regulatory approvals. Should PNW LNG make a commercial decision to proceed with the project, PRGT will then begin site preparation for camp locations and other related sites. Once a final investment decision is made, right-of-way clearing could begin later this year, with commencement of pipeline construction activities shortly thereafter. PRGT expects to begin operations in late 2019 or early 2020.
