North Montney Mainline Project - Spread 3

Scope: 62 km x NPS 42

Horizontal Bore highway 97. Open Cut Townsend River & Cameron River

Year: Fall 2018 - Winter 2019

Client:  TransCanada PipeLines / NGTL

Spread 3 of the North Montney Mainline involved the mainline construction of approximately 62 km of NPS 42 in northeast BC commencing from the north side of the Halfway River following existing and new right of ways to the northeast, across highway 97 extending approximately 15 km northeast along the Tommy Lakes Road. The project was executed from August 2018 to March 2019.

Spread 3 represented one third of the construction package on the NGTL North Montney Mainline Project and required over 700 employees and subcontractors at its peak to complete. Banister averaged over 1.5 km / day production over very challenging terrain including heavy timber clearing, significant wetlands as well as numerous steep slope construction areas along the entire length of the project.

Banister worked with 15 First Nation and Metis communities sourcing over $35 million of services and materials from local Indigenous communities.  

We are proud to say that we met our target production rates and remained on schedule to meet our client’s required in service date.
