Kitimat to Summit Lake Natural Gas Pipeline Looping Project: Conceptual Compensation Plan for Fish Habitat

Construction of the Kitimat to Summit Lake Natural Gas Pipeline Looping Project (the KSL Project) will enable delivery of natural gas from the Kitimat Liquefied Natural Gas (KLNG) facility to the Spectra Energy Transmission BC pipeline facilities located east of the Village of Summit Lake. During the initial review process Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) requested a conceptual compensation plan for the KSL Project. This document presents conceptual plans for fish habitat compensation to offset impacts from construction and operation of the KSL Project. The document briefly reviews the needs for compensation, the logic proposed to define the amount of compensation required, construction monitoring and post-construction assessment, the types of compensation proposed, and the timelines for compensation. Detailed compensation plans will be developed during the permitting phase of the project.
