Jobs and Training Opportunities

The Woodfibre LNG Project will mean 25 + years of natural gas being transported from northeastern BC to a facility in southwestern BC, meaning more good paying jobs for British Columbians throughout the supply chain.  At Woodfibre LNG Limited, it is our intention to fill positions and contracts locally when possible.

Eagle Mountain – Woodfibre Gas Pipeline (EGP) Project

The Woodfibre LNG Project will receive natural gas from the Eagle Mountain – Woodfibre Gas Pipeline (EGP) Project.  The pipeline project will expand a portion of FortisBC’s existing natural gas transmission system, which was built in 1990 to serve Squamish, the Sunshine Coast and Vancouver Island.  It involves adding about 47 kilometres of new pipe, beginning north of the Coquitlam watershed and ending at the Woodfibre site in Squamish, BC.
