Spectra subsidiary gets Canada regulator's approval for BC mainline expansion

Westcoast Energy Inc., d/b/a Spectra Energy Transmission LLC, received approval from Canada's National Energy Board to build and operate its planned Wyndwood pipeline expansion project in northeastern British Columbia.

The approval for the 27-kilometer, C$170.3 million project includes 32 conditions, such as the development of a landowner-specific monitoring plan and mitigating effects on caribou habitat, according to an Aug. 10 news release.

The expansion project is a loop of the Spectra Energy Corp subsidiary's Fort St. John mainline that would run from a point near Stone Creek, British Columbia, to a compressor station at Willow Flats, British Columbia. The compressor station at the end of the loop would also be expanded to accommodate an increase of about 50 MMcf/d of gas.

The NEB in its decision said that the expansion project is in the Canadian public interest. While Westcoast's type of application usually do not require public hearings, the NEB held a hearing as part of its decision-making process due to the high level of public interest in the project.
