Bear Paw Pipeline Corporation has received approval for the construction of a 62.5 km natural gas pipeline in Nova Scotia, Canada.
The Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board approved the project which will run from Goldboro to the proposed Bear Head LNG export facility in Point Cupper.
Bear Paw, a subsidiary of Liquefied Natural Gas Ltd (LNGL), put forward the proposal to construct and operate the pipeline.
The company already has the required permits to construct the LNG facility on the Strait of Canso, southeast of Port Hawkesbury.
LNGL’s Managing Director and CEO and Bear Paw President Greg Vesey said “Bear Paw’s pipeline is integral to the development of Bear Head LNG. The Permit to Construct is an important regulatory component.
“We are putting all the elements in place to develop a successful liquefied natural gas export facility on Cape Breton Island and the pipeline is a strategic and critical element.”
