Whether or not a federal environmental review is necessary for a gas pipeline project proposed to run through the northwest is up for consideration.

To help decide, the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency is asking the public for comments on the Coastal GasLink Pipeline Ltd. project regarding potential environmental effects, according to an agency release.

The proposed project is an approximate 650 km pipeline which would deliver natural gas from northeastern B.C. to a proposed LNG terminal in Kitimat.

Its expected to move up to 1.7 billion cubic feet of natural gas daily, an amount that could grow to 5 billion cubic feet with further expansion.

The deadline for comment submission in writing to the federal agency is Dec. 3.
