Energy East is a 4,600-kilometre pipeline proposed to carry 1.1-million barrels of crude oil per day from Alberta and Saskatchewan to refineries in Eastern Canada.
The project would include:
- Converting an existing natural gas pipeline to an oil transportation pipeline;
- Constructing new pipeline in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Québec and New Brunswick to link up with the converted pipe; and
- Constructing the associated facilities, pump stations and tank terminals required to move crude oil from Alberta to Québec and New Brunswick, including marine facilities that enable access to other markets by ship.

Oral traditional evidence
The NEB is inviting Aboriginal Intervenors to share their oral traditional evidence. This will be an opportunity to identify and increase understanding of the perspectives of Aboriginal groups in relation to Energy East.
For the detailed schedule, including locations and dates as well as guidance for participants, refer to Procedural Direction No. 1. [Filing A72951]
