Mackenzie Valley Natural Gas Pipeline

The exact route of the Mackenzie Valley Pipeline is still under study. Public consultation will provide information that will be considered in the plans and applications submitted to the regulators. In addition, geotechnical, environmental and Traditional Knowledge studies will contribute to the selection of the proposed route.

The proposed natural gas pipeline will be 30 inches in diameter and will run about 1,196 kilometres along the Mackenzie River Valley. As the natural gas moves through the pipeline it will lose pressure due to friction, so compressor stations will be built at regular intervals along the pipeline to maintain the flow of the natural gas. More compression facilities can be added along the reroute in the future if it is necessary to increase the amount of natural gas moved through the pipeline. The natural gas and natural gas liquids pipelines will be located in the same right-of-way.

Surface Facilities

A number of facilities will be built to help move the natural gas through the pipeline and to reduce environmental impact.
