Federally Regulated Canadian Pipeline Abandonment
Information for Canadian Landowners
Pipelines are a safe and efficient means of transporting large quantities of crude oil and natural gas liquids over land. Canadians rely on natural gas and products made from crude oil to meet energy needs each and every day – to drive our cars, fly planes and to heat homes and businesses. Pembina owns and operates pipelines efficiently and safely.
Beginning in 2008, the National Energy Board (NEB) initiated the Land Matters Consultation Initiative. Part of this initiative considered pipeline abandonment and a way to ensure funds are available when it’s time to retire a pipeline system. The NEB directed the companies it regulates to set aside money to use for the abandonment of NEB-regulated pipelines.
Further Information on the Land Matters Consultation Initiative is on the Canada Energy Regulator's (CER) website at www.cer-rec.gc.ca.
