CON­DUCT FAULT STUD­IES

Alberta Oil - - OIL SANDS REPORT -

Trans Moun­tain must file with the NEB, at least three months prior to start­ing con­struc­tion, the re­sults of fault-map­ping stud­ies used in the de­sign of the ex­pan­sion project. The stud­ies must reach con­clu­sions on pos­si­ble seis­mic ac­tiv­ity dur­ing the Holocene epoch (from the Ice Age un­til now) for the Su­mas Fault, Ved­der Moun­tain Fault, Straight Creek Fault and the Rocky Moun­tain Trench (pic­tured). Other pos­si­ble hidden faults should be in­cluded, as should the po­ten­tial for com­pounded risks due to the prox­im­ity of the Ved­der Moun­tain and Su­mas faults.
