The National Energy Board (NEB) will hold a public hearing to consider an application from NOVA Gas Transmission Ltd (NGTL) to abandon a 266-kilometre-section of the Peace River Mainline. The NEB's Hearing Order, released today, outlines the key steps and deadlines for the hearing. The hearing will include both oral and written components, including a community meeting and oral cross examination. There will also be an opportunity for Indigenous participants to present Oral Traditional Evidence.
Developed to inspect pipelines for damage, as well as for mapping and security surveillance, SkyX’s SkyOne drones offer Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) capabilities, as well as autonomous flight and recharging. SkyOne can travel at 150km per hour for 70 minutes and can detect leaks, vandalism, vegetation encroachment – and more. Founded by Didi Horn, a former Captain in the Israeli Air Force and a Drone Pilot, SkyX is targeting its Unmanned Aerial Vehicles - or drones - to service the oil and gas industry.
A National Energy Board (NEB) Hearing Panel will review the Energy East and Eastern Mainline Pipeline Projects concurrently. After reviewing comments from 11 groups and individuals, the Hearing Panel said that the two project applications are closely interrelated and would be most efficiently assessed through a coordinated approach.
Welders often face difficulties when working under the conditions experienced on-site. When welding critical joints on-site the challenges might come from exposure to extremes of heat and cold, harmful sand and dust and even hazardous fumes. Therefore using an expensive Weld Purge Monitor in such conditions may not always be ideal.
The government of British Columbia is pleased by the news that TransCanada Corporation (TransCanada) has filed a variance application with the National Energy Board to proceed with the construction of the North Montney Mainline (NMML) project.
TransCanada Corporation has filed a variance application with the National Energy Board to proceed with construction of the North Montney Mainline (NMML) Project in northeast British Columbia. TransCanada has previously been granted the required primary federal and provincial approvals to construct NMML, subject to conditions that included the requirement for a positive final investment decision on the proposed Pacific Northwest LNG (PNW) Project.
The British Columbia government has welcomed news of TransCanada successfully concluding a long-term fixed-price Open Season for natural gas transport on the Canadian Mainline from the Empress receipt point in Alberta to the Dawn hub in southern Ontario. The company confirmed that its recent Open Season resulted in binding, long-term contracts from Western Canada Sedimentary Basin (WCSB) gas producers to transport 1.5 PJ/d of natural gas at a simplified toll of $0.77/GJ.
Clark-Reliance Corporation has announced a new line of coalescing filter elements for the gas processing industry. The new VertexCore filter elements have been designed to eliminate unsafe filter element changeout techniques while increasing filtration efficiencies. VertexCore elements have a fixed extension that is welded to the element end cap, which allows maintenance staff to easily remove and replace elements without exposing their head, shoulders, torso or legs to a confined space. This design feature eliminates the widespread behavior of climbing into or reaching into filtration pressure vessels to remove or replace elements. The VertexCore extensions and hold down rods, while facilitating element replacement, also provide a barrier to prevent operator entry, a positive reinforcement to confined space safety regulations.
Canadians have told the Government that we must protect our environment for future generations while growing the economy and creating good, middle-class jobs. The Government is making responsible decisions about moving Canadian energy to markets while investing in clean technology and supporting the long-term transition to a lower-carbon energy mix.
