NEB Approves BC Extension Project

Posted on

The National Energy Board (NEB) approved an application from Westcoast Energy Inc., carrying on business as Spectra Energy Transmission, (Westcoast) to construct the South Peace Pipeline project.
  The proposed pipeline is an approximately 60 mile extension of Westcoast’s existing raw gas gathering system near Fort St. John, BC. The new 20-inch diameter pipeline would carry gas from the area south of Fort St. John and the Peace River northward to connect to Westcoast’s McMahon processing plant, in Taylor, BC. The project, with an estimated construction value of $95 million, would connect to either end of an existing pipeline across the Peace River.
