Kinder Morgan is keeping an eye on Enbridge’s newly approved Northern Gateway Project, but the company says it will focus on its own plans to twin the Trans Mountain pipeline.
“Trans Mountain will continue to watch Enbridge Northern Gateway and other pipeline projects under consideration with interest, but we’re focused on our process and our project proposal,” said Ian Anderson, Kinder Morgan Canada president in an emailed statement. “We’ll continue to listen to communities, First Nations and British Columbians both through the National Energy Board process and our engagement and are committed to proceeding with respect and in consideration of local and national interests.”
On Tuesday, the federal government approved Enbridge’s plan to build a new pipeline from Alberta to the B.C. coast, but the company must meet the 209 conditions set out by the National Energy Board’s joint review panel. The actual construction of the line is still a long way off, given the multiple legal challenges against the project and opposition from First Nations.
