Enbridge takes decisive action to address NEB safety requirements
Sept. 18, 2017
At Enbridge, safety and the protection of the environment are our top priorities. Enbridge is diligently complying with requirements identified by the National Energy Board (NEB) associated with the High Pine Expansion Project in northeastern British Columbia.
We take these issues very seriously and have already addressed all the site-specific concerns identified during the NEB inspections conducted in August.
We voluntarily shut down work on the project last week to address the remaining issue with the Enbridge employees and construction contractors that was identified in a September inspection.
We are also developing a corrective action plan that will be implemented by Sept. 26, 2017. We take full responsibility to remain in compliance and are taking decisive action to address the NEB’s concerns.
