National Energy Board will hold a public hearing to review NGTL's plans to abandon Peace River Mainline
The National Energy Board (NEB) will hold a public hearing to consider an application from NOVA Gas Transmission Ltd (NGTL) to abandon a 266-kilometre-section of the Peace River Mainline. The NEB's Hearing Order, released today, outlines the key steps and deadlines for the hearing. The hearing will include both oral and written components, including a community meeting and oral cross examination. There will also be an opportunity for Indigenous participants to present Oral Traditional Evidence.
The pipeline loop that is proposed for abandonment is located in Northwest Alberta. The company plans to remove associated above ground facilities such as the decommissioned Valleyview Compressor Station, utilities, buildings and foundations.
This is the largest application to abandon a facility that has ever been considered by the NEB.
The NEB received four applications to participate and granted participation rights to everyone who applied. The List of Participants for this hearing is available on our website.
The National Energy Board is an independent federal regulator of several parts of Canada's energy industry. It regulates pipelines, energy development and trade in the public interest with safety as its primary concern. For more information on the NEB and its mandate, please visit www.neb-one.gc.ca.
