The National Energy Board says normally, these types of hearings are not required for projects such as this but because of the interest in the project, the NEB has decided to hold a hearing in order to consider the input of those who could be directly affected or who have expertise to share.

The NEB says they received 16 applications to participate in the hearing. They granted intervener status to 14 applicants and commenter status to one other. They declined one application to participate.

The NEB will consider evidence from local landowners, Indigenous groups, companies and Federal departments as it decides whether or not to approve the project.

The Wyndwood Pipeline Expansion Project is a proposal to build and operate 27 km of pipeline and associated facilities southwest of Chetwynd. This project is a loop of Westcoast’s existing Fort St. John Mainline.
