Natural gas plan approved in northeast

The National Energy Board has approved an application from NOVA Gas

Transmission Ltd. (NGTL) to construct and operate the Horn River

facilities, and to purchase and operate a portion of the existing Ekwan

Pipeline (the Ekwan Section). Together, the Horn River facilities and

the Ekwan Section comprise the Horn River Project (the Project).

The $307 million project would transport sweet natural gas from the

Horn River Basin in northeast British Columbia to NGTL’s Alberta System

and provide customers direct access to the NOVA Inventory Transfer

(NIT) market.

The project consists of two primary components: NGTL’s acquisition and

operation of the Ekwan Section and the construction and operation of

new pipeline and metering facilities. The new facilities include the

Cabin Section (72 km of new pipeline) and the Komie East Extension (2.2

km of new pipeline). Four new meter stations would also be constructed

and the existing Ekwan meter station would be modified.

The approval to proceed with the project includes 31 conditions

which NGTL must comply with during the construction and operation of

the project. Several of the conditions target the protection of the

boreal woodland caribou and caribou habitat, migratory birds and

wetlands in the project area.
