New NEB review plan could see Trans Mountain construction restart in 2019

A new National Energy Board review plan could have construction on the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion restart as early as 2019.

Under the request of the federal government, the NEB will begin conducting a review of tanker traffic immediately, with a report expected for no later than February 22nd.

The new schedule is asking for public comments relating to draft factors on the assessment to be submitted by next Wednesday.

According to Trans Mountain Corp President and CEO Ian Anderson, the timeline would see the process wrap up in August of next year, allowing them to restart operations in 2019.

With construction expected to last for roughly 30 months, that would put an operational date for the pipeline sometime in 2022.
