NEB pro­poses to re­view up­stream, down­stream emis­sions from En­ergy East

Cape Breton Post - - Business -

CAL­GARY — Canada’s na­tional en­ergy reg­u­la­tor has pro­posed that the new re­view of the En­ergy East Pipe­line con­sider up­stream and down­stream emis­sions from the project.

The Na­tional En­ergy Board is seek­ing pub­lic in­put un­til the end of the month on the top­ics that should be con­sid­ered dur­ing hear­ings into En­ergy East, with an up­date to that ex­pected by the sum­mer. The NEB says the hear­ing panel has specif­i­cally asked for feed­back on the is­sue of green­house gas emis­sions dur­ing pro­duc­tion and con­sump­tion of the oil that would be shipped along the 4,500-kilo­me­tre pipe­line.

The orig­i­nal En­ergy East re­view was de­railed last September af­ter mem­bers of the reg­u­la­tory panel over­see­ing the hear­ings re­signed amid ques­tions about a po­ten­tial con­flict of in­ter­est.
