Ottawa To Rule On Trans Mountain Pipeline Project By June 18

The 1,150-kilometre Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project between Alberta's oil patch and coastal B.C. would almost triple the existing pipeline's capacity to 890,000 barrels a day.

The Trans Mountain expansion (TMX) project would almost triple the amount of crude flowing from Alberta's oil sands to British Columbia's coast, but has been beset by regulatory delays and opposition from indigenous groups, environmentalists and the government of British Columbia.

The NEB report in February made 16 new recommendations for the government, including implementing measures to reduce ferry noise, adding incentives and establishing requirements for quiet vessel design.

The federal government says it's delaying until June 18 its decision on a pipeline to pump crude from northern Alberta oil sands to an oil terminal on British Columbia's Pacific Coast to allow for more time for consultations with Indigenous groups affected by the controversial expansion project.
