Application Information

On 19 June 2012, Chevron Canada Limited (Chevron) filed an application seeking board approval for Priority Destination Designation on the Trans Mountain Pipeline (the Application).

If approved, when space on the Trans Mountain is constrained, shipments to Chevron’s Burnaby Refinery would receive priority over other shipments that are not made under contract for firm service.

List of Issues

The Board has identified but does not limit itself to the following issues for discussion in the proceeding:

  1. The criteria to be used to designate Priority Destination in accordance with section 1.58 of Tariff No. 88.
  2. The implications resulting from the disposition of any Priority Destination application, and consideration of the need for, implications of, and alternatives to granting Priority Destination.
  3. Whether the Application meets the criteria for designating Chevron’s Burnaby Refinery as a Priority Destination.
  4. Whether any aspects of the Application are contingent on issues to be decided in other regulatory proceedings; specifically, in reference to matters regarding a proposed expansion of the Trans Mountain pipeline system, including:
    1. Trans Mountain Pipeline ULC regarding toll methodology (File OF-Tolls-Group1-T260-2012-06 01) [Folder 828580]; and
    2. Suncor Energy Products Partnership regarding the open season process (File OF-Tolls-Group1–T260–2012-04 01). [Folder 828371]

      If so, the extent to which the issues are inter-related.
  5. The terms and conditions, if any, that should be included in any approval the Board may issue.


The oral portion of the hearing will commence on 26 March 2013 at 10 a.m. in the Board’s hearing room at 444 Seventh Avenue S.W., Calgary, Alberta.

The deadline for intervenor written evidence and letters of comment/oral comment registration is 13 December 2012.
