Natural gas is delivered through pipelines as a compressed gas that travels through transmission pipelines at up to 40 kilometers per hour.

The natural gas that is delivered to an LNG facility is the same type of gas that delivered to homes and offices.

Pipelines in BC are regulated by the BC Oil and Gas Commission (OGC). If a pipeline crosses a provincial or national border, it is regulated by the National Energy Board.

Every natural gas pipeline is required to have an emergency response plan that is continuously updated and submitted to the regulators for review and audit.

Pipelines and pipeline companies must meet the standards published by the Canadian Standards Association to ensure that they are designed, constructed, operated and maintained at the highest level.

Each day, approximately 420 million cubic metres (14.8 billion cubic feet) of natural gas travel through Canada’s natural gas pipelines. That’s enough to heat nearly 5.7 million new average sized single detached homes in Canada each day. [1]
