Today is the scheduled National Energy Board hearing date for the Redwillow Pipeline Project in the South Peace, at the Best Western Inn in Dawson Creek.
SemCams, Albertaâ€™s largest licensed sour gas processor is, proposing to build the 150 kilometer pipeline, southwest of Tumbler Ridge, for just over 160 million dollars.
It would connect with the companyâ€™s existing gas transmission system near Grovedale, southwest of Grande Prairie.
It would transport 70 million cubic feet of sour gas daily, from two northeast BC producers but, thereâ€™s opposition, on this side of the border.
As of last report, the Peace River Regional District and the City of Fort St. John were among those who had filed for intervener status.
They’re expected to argue most of the project benefits will go to Alberta, which will house all of the gas processing facilities.
