Northwest Mainline Komie North Extension Project Decision
The NEB recommended partial approval to the Governor in Council for the Northwest Mainline Komie North Extension project submitted by NOVA Gas Transmission Ltd (NGTL). The NEB recommended approval of the Chinchaga section of the Project, a 33-kilometer pipeline loop running between the Chinchaga meter station and the Meikle River compressor station, but did not recommend approval of the Komie North section (97 km of pipe located north of Fort Nelson). The Board concluded the toll treatment for Chinchaga to be appropriate, but inappropriate for the Komie North section. The Board also found that NGTL did not establish the need for a pipeline of the proposed size at this time. The board concluded that approval of the Komie North section, as proposed, would have negative commercial impacts on other parties.
