And so it begins

NEB agrees to hear jurisdictional challenge over key LNG Canada pipeline
Challenger says the pipeline, which is an important component in the LNG Canada facility, should be considered a federal project

The energy board says Sawyer’s jurisdictional challenge was received in July. Comment was then provided by Coastal, which is a subsidiary of TransCanada Corp., and Sawyer was allowed to reply.

It says Sawyer argues that because TransCanada operates the pipeline and the connected Nova Gas Transmission Ltd. system together, they are in fact a single federal undertaking.

In reply, according to the NEB, Coastal accuses Sawyer of pursuing a “vexatious” litigation designed to frustrate upstream natural gas development in B.C., further charging it’s not a coincidence that his complaint was made as the project was finally proceeding, not years ago when it was approved.
