On May 10, 2017, the National Energy Board (“NEB” or “the Board”) released two separate draft Lists of Issues for the Energy East and Eastern Mainline Projects. The Board is seeking public input on topics that should be considered in the review of the two projects. Once finalized, the List of Issues will guide the NEB hearings by identifying relevant topics regarding the Energy East and Eastern Mainline Projects. Additionally, as part of the NEB’s responsibilities under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012, the Board is also seeking input on the scope of factors for the Environmental Assessment (EA).
The deadline for public comments is May 31, 2017 and the Board expects to release the final List of Issues by early summer 2017.
For more information on these recent developments, including the process for providing comments, please see the following documents on the NEB website:
