Project Information

If approved, the Project is to be located around 90 kilometres south of Fort McMurray, Alberta, and would involve approximately 77 kilometres of new pipeline and related facilities, of which about 30.5 kilometres would be contiguous with existing pipeline right of way.

The pipeline has been designed for an initial capacity of approximately 27.5 million cubic metres (972 MMcf/d) of sweet gas. The construction, whose projected costs are estimated at $157 million, would start in November 2012. The pipeline is scheduled to be in service on 1 April 2013.

Hearing Date and Location

The Board will conduct a public hearing process that will include an oral hearing set to begin at 10:00 a.m. (MST), on 8 May 2012, in Fort McMurray, at the Chateau Nova Airport Hotel.
