Notley 'deeply disappointed' by Energy East cancellation

The proposed route of the Energy East pipeline was shared with the media at an Aug. 2013 press conference with Trans Canada officials

If he had seen the light of day, the pipeline Energy Is reported to have transported each day, 1.1 million barrels of crude oil from Alberta or Saskatchewan to destination refineries in eastern Canada and a port terminal in New Brunswick, a distance of 4500 kilometers. In the summer of 2016, the National Energy Board's review of Energy East was compromised after it was revealed by the National Observer that former Quebec Premier Jean Charest met the chairman and two commissioners on the National Energy Board while working for TransCanada.

"We still believe that", Gallant said. After President Donald Trump made headlines for reversing the Obama administration's decision not to permit the Keystone XL pipeline, the company suggested in July that it might not even go through with the project, which would bring tar sands oil south from Alberta through Montana, South Dakota, and Nebraska.

The company TransCanada had asked the national energy Board (NEB) last month to suspend the process of approval of the pipeline, after the criteria had been tightened.

TransCanada's decision to cancel the Energy East pipeline project exposed deep divisions across the political landscape Thursday, highlighting the ever-present clash between energy development and environmental protection.

The Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association and Regina Mayor Michael Fougere also spoke in favour of Energy East. Our government has supported Energy East since the project was proposed.

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley called the demise of both pipelines "an unfortunate outcome for Canadians". In a statement, the company said the decision would result in roughly $1 billion in losses and cited "changed circumstances" as its rationale.

TransCanada's Eastern Mainline project, also cancelled this week, would have added 279 kilometres of new natural gas pipeline facilities and nine compression units to the Canadian Mainline system used to deliver natural gas in Ontario and Quebec. Companies are not eager to invest in expensive tar sands projects unless the price of oil comes back up. "We can't certainly let our guard down at this point, because the search for new energies and fossil fuels will continue because the industry is there".

Reaction across the country has been mixed. It was first proposed in 2013.

But environmental groups questioned the need for a pipeline they said was at odds with Canada's commitment to tackle climate change. "Nothing has changed in the government's decision-making process".

Oil prices have roughly halved since 2014. Kinder Morgan's TransMountain pipeline has come under fire for inadequately consulting with indigenous communities along the route, and it had a "very bad" environmental review, Scott said.
