On April 20, 2017 under Order XO-T260-003-2017 and MO-021-2017, the National Energy Board (NEB) approved Trans Mountain’s application to relocate a portion of four existing pipelines within its Burnaby Terminal. This activity will commence no earlier than August 17, 2017* and will continue through to December 2017*.

To accommodate relocation of existing infrastructure, the following steps will occur on our Burnaby Terminal property:

  • Mobilization of equipment to the site
  • Preparation of the areas where work will occur including removal of brush and trees required to complete relocation work and fenceline expansion (does not include additional tree removals required to accommodate work activities)
  • Installation of a temporary roadway inside the fenceline to accommodate work activities
  • Expansion of a portion of the existing west and east fenceline surrounding Burnaby Terminal by about 20 m
  • Installation of new pipes by digging a trench, installing pipe, connecting the pipe to existing piping on either end, backfilling the trench and hydrotesting the pipe
  • Decommission existing pipelines (that were replaced by the relocated pipelines)

All work will occur on Trans Mountain’s property and will be taking place during regular business hours. Measures are in place to minimize any impacts of this work to the public and the environment. Trans Mountain has developed Environmental Protection Plans for its work at Burnaby Terminal and is committed to post-Trans Mountain Expansion Project reclamation.
