Coastal GasLink’s prime contractor Pacific Atlantic Pipeline Construction (PAPC) will soon provide information to local companies on how to bid on contracts.
PAPC will construct 165 km of Coastal GasLink’s 670 km pipeline running from northeast British Columbia to the LNG Canada natural gas liquefaction plant.
According to BC Local News, the suggestion arose following two meetings held in February by PAPC for local companies seeking work on the Coastal Gaslink Project.
PAPC Manager, Stakeholder and Indigenous Relations Sandy Stevens said a project of this size comes with contract bidding requirements that might not be familiar in this area.
“Giving everyone the opportunity to understand our business processes and learn how to access opportunities that we make available is paramount,” said Ms Stevens.
“We are committed to local and Indigenous communities neighbouring our projects.
“Our parent company, Bonatti Inc., holds an average local and Indigenous workforce of 97 per cent, with over 7,000 local and Indigenous qualified suppliers,” she said.
BC Local News reported Ms Stevens stating PAPC will break out components of larger contract opportunities so that smaller local companies can then bid on the work, which is a method PAPC has used on larger projects elsewhere.
The pipeline project is still in its pre-construction phase with more contract opportunities expected to come.
