A public hearing for Spectra Energy’s South Peace Pipeline Project has concluded in Dawson Creek this morning. Three National Energy Board panel members listened to presentations from a local landowner as well as from representatives of Spectra Energy. The proposed pipeline would expand Spectra’s existing raw gas gathering system by approximately 86 kilometres, delivering natural gas from Oetata Ridge to the McMahon processing plant in Taylor. Andrew Cameron, Communications Officer for the National Energy Board, says that the meeting represents the final stage the consultation process.
