The National Energy Board (NEB) in Canada has suspended its review of TransCanada’s Energy East and Eastern Mainline projects, following a request from the company.
During this period, the board will not issue further decisions or take further process steps relating to the review of the projects. In addition, the NEB’s Expanded Indigenous and Public Engagement activities will also be suspended.
The Energy East Pipeline Project is a proposed 2,796-mile pipeline that would carry 1.1 MMbpd of crude oil from Alberta and Saskatchewan to refineries in Eastern Canada and a marine terminal in New Brunswick.
The Eastern Mainline Project is a proposal to build 173 miles of new gas pipeline and related components in four sections, beginning near Markham, Ontario and finishing near Brouseville, Ontario.
