Commission of the CER Approves Trans Mountain's Route Deviation Application; Reasons to follow

CALGARY, AB, Sept. 25, 2023 /CNW/ - Today, the Commission of the Canada Energy Regulator (CER) approved Trans Mountain's application for a route deviation in the Pípsell (Jacko Lake) area. The Commission will release its reasons for decision in the coming weeks.

On August 10, 2023, Trans Mountain submitted an application to revise the route and method of construction for a 1.3 km section of the pipeline route, in the Pípsell (Jacko Lake) area. The company indicated that it had encountered significant technical challenges while attempting to complete micro-tunnelling along the previously approved route. In response to these issues, Trans Mountain proposed a combined approach of horizontal directional drilling and conventional open trenching along the revised route.

Stk'emlúpsemc te Secwépemc Nation (SSN) responded to the application, as the area holds profound spiritual and cultural significance to the Nation and Peoples. An oral hearing was held in Calgary on September 18, 19 and 20, 2023, to hear submissions from both parties on the application. The hearing included the provision of Indigenous knowledge by SSN, as well as cross-examination and final argument.

The Commission does, from time to time, issue a decision with reasons to follow. Either companies or interested parties may request an expedited decision to quickly address their concerns or provide certainty.

The Commission is responsible for adjudicative decisions, operating as a quasi-judicial body that is arm's length from other parts of the CER governance structure and the federal government. The Commission is part of the CER and, although its adjudicative role is independent, it contributes to the overall effective delivery of the CER's mandate and corporate outcomes.
