National Energy Board make $175,000 available to help review Vantage Pipeline Project

 

The National Energy Board (NEB) is making $175,000 available to allow interested parties to become involved in the regulatory process for the proposed Vantage Pipeline Project.

The money is being made available under the Participant Funding Program to assist landowners, Aboriginal groups and incorporated non-industry not-for profit organizations to participate in the regulatory process. This will help interested parties be able review and comment on a project application by Vantage Pipeline Inc. to be submitted in relation to the pipeline.

An independent funding review committee will examine all applications and make recommendations on the allocation of funds.  Once approved for funding, an individual or group would then have to apply to be an intervenor.

Those interested should visit the NEB’s website at www.neb-one.gc.ca. The deadline to submit a funding application is Dec. 17.

If the project is approved, construction is set to commence in 2012.
