NEB Receives Application for the Brunswick Pipeline Project
The National Energy Board (NEB) received an application submitted by Emera Brunswick Pipeline Company Ltd. for a natural gas transmission pipeline to be built in the Saint John, New Brunswick area.
The application for the proposed natural gas pipeline is based on a project description initially filed by Maritimes and Northeast Pipeline on January 6, 2006. In its application, Emera Brunswick Pipeline Company Ltd. seeks authorization to build and operate a 762-millimeter (30-inch) diameter, 145 kilometre pipeline to connect the Canaport(TM) Liquefied Natural Gas Facility at Mispec Point, near Saint John to the international border near St. Stephen.
If the application is complete, the NEB will issue a hearing order that will provide more information about its process, including dates and the location of the public hearing. The hearing order will also detail the different levels of public participation.
The NEB is an independent federal agency that regulates several aspects
of Canada's energy industry. Its purpose is to promote safety and security,
environmental protection and efficient energy infrastructure and markets in
the Canadian public interest, within the mandate set by Parliament in the
regulation of pipelines, energy development and trade.
