CAPP statement regarding NEB recommendation that Trans Mountain Expansion Project is in Canadian public interest
February 22, 2019 – Calgary, Alberta
Today Canada’s National Energy Board (NEB) announced its recommendation that the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project is in the Canadian public interest.
The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers has issued the following statement.
“The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers thinks today’s recommendation from the National Energy Board is a crucial, but not surprising step toward the completion of the Trans Mountain Expansion Project. CAPP urges the government to complete remaining Indigenous consultations as soon as possible, as delays to this project are costing the Canadian economy and taxpayers billions of dollars. Pipelines are critical in ensuring Canada has access to high growth markets and receives full value for our natural resources. As global energy demand increases, the world needs more Canada. We can supply the world with responsible energy produced the Canadian way.
