Detailed Route Hearings for Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion Project Begin Next Week

For immediate release
November 17, 2017 – Calgary, Alberta – National Energy Board

CALGARY – The National Energy Board (NEB) will hear from Alberta landowners who have raised concerns with the detailed route of the Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion Project.

The 1,147 km pipeline project was approved by the Government of Canada in November 2016 along an approximate 150 metre wide pipeline corridor. The detailed route approval process will determine the exact placement of the new pipeline within the approved corridor. It is a key regulatory step required by the NEB before construction can begin on the new pipeline.

The NEB has scheduled hearings in three locations to accommodate local participants:

  • Hinton, AB – November 20 – November 22, 2017
  • Edson, AB – November 24 – November 29, 2017
  • Spruce Grove, AB – December 1 – December 2, 2017

Details of these hearings and a daily schedule of appearances are available on the NEB website. Live audio from the hearing will be streamed through the NEB website.

Media accreditation is required for all journalists, photographers, and videographers who wish to attend the hearing in-person. Media must be able to present government issued photo ID along with a business card and/or a letter requesting accreditation on official letterhead of a media organization, signed by the Publisher, Editor-in-chief, or Assignment Editor (along with their contact information). More information on media accreditation is available on the NEB website.
