A 75km pipeline under the Salish Sea will be used to deliver natural gas from Washington state to the proposed liquefaction facility at Bamberton, and another pipeline will carry gas over land from Bamberton to Sarita Bay near Port Alberni.

Vancouver-based Steelhead LNG has partnered with pipeline developer Williams to get natural gas to two proposed facilities on Vancouver Island, it announced Tuesday.

The Island Gas Connector Project would transport the gas undersea from Washington State to the proposed Malahat floating natural gas liquefaction and export facility. From there it would travel through a land-based pipeline to the proposed Huu-ay-aht First Nations LNG facility at Sarita Bay, 75km southwest of Port Alberni.
