Pipeline Financial Requirements Regulations

The National Energy Board Act includes absolute liability and financial resource requirements for pipeline companies.  Companies operating pipelines are required to maintain financial resources to cover the costs of an unintended or uncontrolled release from a pipeline. Companies will be required to demonstrate and maintain financial resources that match, at a minimum, the amount of absolute liability applicable to them. A portion of the financial resources must be readily accessible to the company.
