A spokesperson with the Saanich Inlet Network is still seeing red flags when it comes to Steelhead LNG and the company’s pipeline plans.
Hilary Strang says she’s encouraged that Steelhead has pulled out of the Malahat LNG project but, she says, there’s no word on the pipeline plans the company has for the Island.
She says¬†Steelhead is still moving ahead with their LNG project at Port Alberni and that will require a pipeline……
The Malahat Project would have seen a 75 kilometer subsea pipeline built to transport natural gas to Washington as part of first phase.

There were plans to connect that pipeline eventually to the Port Alberni LNG project and that would have meant a pipeline running up the east coast of Vancouver Island and over to Sarita Bay.
