The Board has considered Kinder Morgan Canada’s (KMC) requests dated 29 November 2013 and 5 December 2013 to lift the pressure restriction on two segments of the TransMountain Pipeline. These sections are Darfield to Kamloops and Kamloops to Sumas, located in British Columbia.

Based on the Board’s review of KMC’s submissions, including engineering assessments, the Board finds the company has complied with NEB requirements for the two pipeline segments identified above. The Board, therefore, approves KMC’s request to lift the pressure restriction imposed under Safety Order SO-T260-005-2013. KMC may return the two segments to full service.

The facilities we regulate are safe and the environment in which they operate is well protected. At the same time, we are Canada’s energy watchdog and our work is never finished. We strive to continually improve. This decision is a case in point.
