The National Energy Board has approved an application from NOVA Gas Transmission to construct and operate, the Groundbirch Pipeline Project.

Approximately 77 kilometres in length, the pipeline would be Canada’s first federally regulated facility approved for the transportation of shale gas from Western Canada.

The project is a proposed extension of the existing TransCanada Alberta System to connect sweet natural gas supply, mainly from the Montney formation, located here in northeast British Columbia.
The NEB’s approval to proceed with this project includes nearly 30 conditions, all of which must be met before NOVA can be granted permission to open the pipeline.

With respect to aboriginal matters and landowner concerns, the company is required to submit an update on consultation activities.
