The National Energy Board has approved Spectra’s plan to build the South Peace Pipeline Project. The $95 million dollar project will see 92km of pipeline built just south of the Peace River to an area north of the West Kiskatinaw River. The proposed pipeline would expand Spectra’s existing raw gas gathering system by connecting to the McMahon processing plant in Taylor. Consultation with landowners and community groups has been on going since 2007. The NEB expects Spectra to provide ongoing information to members of the Kiskatinaw Pipeline Landowners Association, and interested landowners and residents, regarding Westcoast’s programs to address issues associated with hydrogen sulphide (H2S). The NEB believes with the implementation of Spectra’s environmental protection procedures and mitigation measures, and the NEB’s recommendations, the Project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental impacts.
