Construction has started on a pipeline that will transport output from a Canadian shale gas project partly owned by Japan Petroleum Exploration, the Japanese company said on Thursday.

The 206-km North Montney Mainline (NMML) will connect several shale gas projects in northeastern British Columbia to the existing pipeline network.

NMML will have capacity of 42 million cubic metres per day and is scheduled to go onstream in Q4 2019.
