The National Energy Board (NEB) will hear oral cross-examination next week on an application from NOVA Gas Transmission Ltd. (NGTL) to abandon a 266 km section of its Peace River Mainline.

The hearing will begin at 9 am on Wednesday 8 November at the NEB’s Hearing Room in Calgary. The public is welcome to attend.

NGTL applied to the NEB on 18 August 2016 to abandon parts of the Peace River Mainline in northwestern Alberta. The company proposes to remove a 9 km section of the pipeline on Sturgeon Lake Cree Nation Reserve Land. If this application is approved, NGTL would abandon the remaining pipeline segments in place. This is the largest application to abandon a facility that has ever been considered by the NEB.

The NEB received four applications to participate and granted participation rights to everyone who applied. All of the intervenors have indicated that they do not intend to cross-examine NGTL.

The hearing is scheduled to run until Thursday. Those unable to attend the hearing in person can access both a live audio feed and a daily transcript here.
