Kinder Morgan Pipeline is too risky for BC Coastline

Recommended Posts

Great news today...

 

Is this the end of the road for the Kinder Morgan Pipeline of Tar  sludge expansion ?

Should Mother Earth  celebrate tonight with a party. / celebration . ? 

 

From todays Vancouver Sun

 

CALGARY – British Columbia’s government wants to restrict shipments of oilsands crude in pipelines and on railways cars in the province through a series of proposed new rules that is set to create additional uncertainty for Kinder Morgan Canada’s $7.4-billion Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.

 

B.C. Environment and Climate Change Strategy Minister George Heyman announced Tuesday rules to limit “the increase of diluted bitumen transportation until the behaviour of spilled bitumen can be better understood and there is certainty regarding the ability to adequately mitigate spills.”

 

To that end, B.C. will establish an independent scientific advisory panel to make recommendations on if and how heavy oils can be safely transported and, if spilled, cleaned up.

Tuesday’s announcement did not specifically mention Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain expansion, which will boost the shipments of oil from Alberta to Burnaby, B.C. from 300,000 barrels per day to 890,000 bpd, but the B.C. NDP had promised to block the pipeline’s construction during an election campaign last year.

Kinder Pipeline officially dead

create additional uncertainty for Kinder Morgan Canada’s $7.4-billion Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.

 

Are you sure it's officially dead? Ottawa and JT supports it. Can two parties that lost an election actually kill this?

Far from dead and if NAFTA is a foregone conclusion you better hope we find new routes to tidewater because "america first" means Canadian fuel last.  And as we now only have 2 refineries in all of Canada making our diesel and none making regular gas/fuel anymore if the US decides their lines are "full" we've nowhere to sell and thereby nowhere to refine.

 

Imagine watching the price of lettuce jump by $4.00 overnight in january

Thank you hip. Having pipelines to the Ocean is so important, always has been but maybe now more than ever. Wanna hear something scary, the U.S could put tariffs on OUR oil and we would have no choice but to pay it as we have no other ways or places to sell our oil but the U.S. Who also pays the lowest for oil on earth.

I'd rather just subsidize building refineries.  Create some well-paid, long-term jobs

Great idea unfortunately many Canadians oppose that especially in B.C. We also need pipelines to the Ocean so we can sell our oil. Canada can and should be an Energy superpower.

Actually, what's scarier is at ANY point in time US lines could simply say sorry we're at capacity.  Our oil would go nowhere.  With the Permian basin in Texas now viable again for the first time in decades, it's the closest; easiest oil in North America.  Couple that with the shale beds in the North East and really...we're against a wall.

Lol, now that I treated Strome with his own mania, I'm really curious as to what Trudeau has to say, he'll be in Naniamo VIU here in the next few days, we'll see how he placates the WC.

 

Strome: Seriously, you're a joke.
