Dear Mr. Ferris:

Over Pressure events on Trans-Northern Pipelines Inc. (TNPI) System

The National Energy Board is in receipt of your letter of 2 September 2017 regarding recent discovery of previously unreported overpressure events on Trans-Northern Pipelines Inc. (TNPI) pipeline system.

The Board requires a meeting with you to discuss your management of issues related to overpressure incidents on your system.  These overpressure incidents give us significant concern with TNPI’s management of its pipeline system.  Therefore, we require meeting attendees include yourself and Board of Directors of TNPI.

Also, we are reviewing whether further actions are required including the need for additional enforcement actions.

I will be available to meet in the afternoon of either 18 September 2017 or 21 September 2017.

Thank you for bringing these events to our attention.

Yours sincerely,

C. Peter Watson, P. Eng. FCAE
Chair and CEO
