NEB Conditionally Approves Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion
The National Energy Board has conditionally recommended the $6.8-billion Trans Mountain oil pipeline expansion project, a controversial ruling praised by industry and panned by environmentalists.
The regulator said Thursday that Kinder Morgan Canada Inc.’s Trans Mountain project must meet 157 conditions. “These conditions would address issues such as safety, protection of the environment and other considerations,” the NEB said in a 533-page report. The federal cabinet, however, will make the final decision.
