Joint Review Panel, Enbridge Northern Gateway Project, Dec 19 2013
The Joint Review Panel (the Panel) for the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway Project today recommended that the federal government approve the project, subject to 209 required conditions.
"We recommend approval of the Enbridge Northern Gateway Project, subject to the 209 conditions set out in Volume 2 of our report. We have concluded that the project would be in the public interest. We find that the project’s potential benefits for Canada and Canadians outweigh the potential burdens and risks."
The Panel sets out 209 conditions in Appendix 1. The conditions address all aspects of the proposed project, including potential risks associated with the oil pipeline, the condensate pipeline, the Kitimat Terminal, and associated activities and facilities.
