NOVA Gas Transmission Ltd. – Sundre Crossover

What’s New

Project Information

NOVA Gas Transmission Ltd. (NGTL) filed an application on March 24, 2017 asking the National Energy Board (NEB or the Board) for approval of NGTL’s proposed Sundre Crossover Project (Sundre Crossover).

The Sundre Crossover would consist of approximately 21 km of 1,067 mm (NPS 42) outside diameter pipe to transport sweet natural gas from the upstream (north) connections on the existing NPS 30 Edson Mainline (Jackson Section) and the NPS 42 Edson Mainline Loop (Sundre Section), both in SW 13-33-5 W5M, to the downstream (south) connections on the existing NPS 42 Western Alberta System Mainline Loop (Cremona Section) and NPS 36 Western Alberta System Mainline (Airdrie Section), both in SE 23-31-5 W5M.

The proposed pipeline right-of-way (RoW) for the Project will be alongside and contiguous to an existing Enbridge pipeline RoW and other linear disturbances for approximately 96 per cent of its length.

NGTL has applied to the NEB under section 58 of the National Energy Board Act. In general, these types of applications do not require a public hearing. However, in light of concerns raised by a number of local residents, the NEB has decided to hold a hearing in order to consider the input of those who could be directly affected or who have expertise to share.
