Could be another year before the Mackenzie Valley Pipeline report is ready

It will be another year before the report is released on Mackezie Valley natural gas pipeline.

That announcement was made Friday after after a number of groups had started to question why the joint review pannel hadn’t completed its report after almost a year. Public consultation into the $16.2 billion project ended in November of 2007.

"We understand that there is tremendous interest in the panel’s findings, but we are required and committed to base our findings on a full and fair review of the evidence," panel chairman Robert Hornal said in the release.

A number of companies have proposed to build the pipeline through the Northwest Territories to the Alberta border near BC. The pipeline would be over 1,200 km long and would connect to existing pipelines that lead to markets to the south.
