The Trans Mountain pipeline expansion is facing delay yet again.
The Crown corporation building the massive project, which had previously stated it expected to have the pipeline in-service near the end of the first quarter, said Monday it has once again run into construction challenges in B.C.
In a statement on its website, Trans Mountain Corp. said Monday it has encountered “technical issues” and needs additional time to determine the “safest and most prudent actions for minimizing further delay.”
The company said the technical issues were discovered between Jan. 25 and Jan. 27 during construction work in the Fraser Valley between Hope and Chilliwack, B.C.
“Trans Mountain is fully focused on the completion of the pipeline and will not be providing (media) interviews at this time as it works towards the anticipated in-service date in the second quarter of 2024,” the company stated.
