INSPECTION OFFICER ORDER NO. RRW-001-2015
IN THE MATTER OF THE NATIONAL ENERGY BOARD ACT,
AN ORDER UNDER SECTION 51.1
is employed by Westcoast Energy Inc., carrying on Business as Spectra Energy Transmission (Westcoast), and/or is a person with management responsibilities and oversight of facility operations.
On 18 June 2015, the undersigned National Energy Board Inspection Officer conducted an inspection of Kobes Creek Booster Station.
The Inspection Officer has reasonable grounds to believe: there exists a potentially serious hazard and threat to the safety of workers at the Kobes compressor station as Westcoast has not demonstrated that the overhead cranes are safe to operate.
Based on the above, the inspection officer has reasonable grounds to believe that a hazard to the safety or security of the public, or employees of a company or a detriment to property or the environment is being or will be caused by the construction, operation, maintenance or abandonment of the pipeline, or excavation activity or construction of a facility as per paragraph 49(2)(a).
Therefore, is HEREBY ORDERED,
pursuant to sections 51.1 and 51.1(2) of the National Energy Board Act, to
Westcoast is ordered to cease use of all overhead cranes with mismatching hoist, trolley and bridge load ratings at the Kobes Creek Booster Station until they can demonstrate they are safe to operate.
