Kinder Morgan Canada Limited is pleased with the National Energy Board's (NEB) decision of setting down a generic process to hear any future motions as they relate to provincial and municipal permitting issues.
"Provision of a process that is open, fair and provides certainty for all parties is good news and is an important component of the assurances we need for the successful execution of the Trans Mountain Expansion Project," said Ian Anderson, President of Kinder Morgan Canada Limited.
Kinder Morgan is committed to continuing to work with local authorities in good faith and will be reviewing the decision in more detail.
The NEB and the Government of Canada considered timing and schedule in their determinations that the Project is in the public's interest. Timely execution of the project is necessary for Trans Mountain to provide the needed transportation capacity to access global oil markets and maximise related economic benefits to all Canadians including local, regional and Aboriginal communities.
