Vinci awarded $675m for 166km Canadian gas pipeline

21 June 2018 | By GCR Staff 0 Comments

A joint venture including Vinci subsidiary Spiecapag Canada and Macro Pipelines has won a US$675m contract to build two sections of pipeline measuring 166km.

60% of the contract will go to Spiecapag and 40% to Macro Pipelines.

The gas pipeline will be laid in Vancouver, British Columbia, for Canadian energy infrastructure operator TransCanada Corporation.

Part of the 670km Coastal GasLink Pipeline, the joint venture will carry out a pre-construction planning phase pending a positive final investment decision by LNG Canada for a proposed natural gas liquefaction facility in Kitimat.

The decision is expected in the fourth quarter of 2018, with construction set to begin in early 2019.
