Enbridge Statement on a recent New York Times story related to the Williams and Jensen firm and the U.S. EPA
April 06, 2018
The facts do not support the reporter’s insinuation. Williams and Jensen has not worked on any regulatory matters before the current administration on behalf of Enbridge. This includes matters before the EPA related to the Line 67 permit mentioned in the NYT story.
Steven Hart, chairman of Williams and Jensen, has not been registered to lobby on behalf of Enbridge since 2002.
The Department of State prepared the Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) for the Line 67 Expansion Project consistent with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The Final SEIS re-affirmed the narrow scope of environmental impacts associated with the Line 67 Expansion Project and underscores the vital service that this existing pipeline provides in delivering secure and reliable supplies of North American crude oil to the United States. The lengthy regulatory process for the Line 67 Expansion Project took more than four years and was exceptionally thorough.
