Pipeline regulation in Canada
Canada contains more than 760,000 kilometres of pipelines transporting hydrocarbons like oil and natural gas. That’s almost enough pipe to go to the moon and back. Most of these pipelines are regulated provincially.
Pipelines that cross provincial boundaries or the Canada-U.S. border are regulated federally by the National Energy Board (NEB). The NEB is responsible for 73,000 km of pipeline, or roughly 10 per cent of the Canadian total.
