CAPP Responds to Rulings on Trans Mountain Expansion and Line 3 Pipeline Projects
February 4, 2020 – Calgary, Alberta
The Trans Mountain Expansion (TMX) and Line 3 pipeline projects have received rulings in their favour, in Canada and the United states respectively, clearing important legal hurdles to avoid additional disruption or delay to construction of the projects.
“CAPP is pleased with the rulings but not surprised as both of these projects have undergone rigorous environmental and regulatory reviews as well as historic levels of consultation with stakeholders, particularly with Indigenous peoples.
This is good news for Canada. These two major pipeline projects have overcome significant court challenges and collectively this represents a positive step forward to gaining expanded markets for responsibly-produced Canadian oil.”
