Kinder Morgan gets more time to answer pipeline questions

Two-week extension gives company until June 18 to respond to queries on Trans Mountain twinning

Kinder Morgan has been granted a two-week extension to answer thousands of questions from intervenors about its planned Trans Mountain oil pipeline project.

The National Energy Board decision pushes back the company’s original June 4 deadline to June 18.

Kinder Morgan had asked for an extension to June 27 to respond to the more than 10,000 questions from 122 intervenors registered for the NEB hearings into the project that get underway next January.

The company still expects to answer questions from about half the intervenors by the original deadline.

Intervenors have been given a new deadline of July 4 to file subsequent motions in response to Kinder Morgan’s answers.

The proposed $5.4-billion project would nearly triple Kinder Morgan’s pipeline capacity to 890,000 barrels of oil per day and greatly increase the number of tankers passing through Vancouver harbour.
