Husky has held two open houses in early November in Lloydminster and Maidstone where they outlined plans to construct a new crude and condensate pipeline to support it’s growing heavy oil thermal production in Saskatchewan.
The approved pipeline’s proposed route would traverse about 3.5 miles through portions of the Jefferson National Forest in Giles and Montgomery counties and Monroe County, West Virginia, crossing the Appalachian Trial at one point near the state line.
Notley's message that the Trans Mountain pipeline will bring prosperity to all Canadians, and especially to those in British Columbia and Alberta, was warmly received by groups hoping to benefit from the pipeline expansion.
Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder and Canadian oil transport company Enbridge Inc. announced an agreement Monday intended to boost the safety of twin oil pipelines beneath the waterway where Lakes Michigan and Huron converge.
Company spokesman Terry Cunha says TransCanada is not, however, asking for the approved route to be reconsidered and that the motion is a request to address some questions raised in the decision.
