How do I find out about proposed pipeline projects?

The planning process for pipelines takes years. There are many surveys, studies and plans that need to be completed to address the societal, developmental, environmental and safety considerations necessary to build the pipeline.

This involves:

  • Engaging thousands of landowners and stakeholders in the process
  • Conducting numerous environmental studies to ensure the the land, wildlife and waterways are protected
  • Completing archeological surveys to help pipeline operators understand and recognize cultural and historically-significant sites
  • Developing engineering plans to deliver the best technology for the geography and climate conditions
