NEB Joint Review Panel selected for Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline

Canada's Environment Minister Jim Prentice and the National Energy Board have appointed a three-member panel to review the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline project. Two of the three appointees are members of the NEB: Sheila Leggett and Kenneth Bateman (Hans Matthews is the other). Of note, both Leggett and Bateman sat on the panels that heard and decided GH-5-2008 TransCanada's NOVA Application (transfer of jurisdiction from Alberta to Federal) and heard the Stream 3 Abandonment Funding hearing.

The NEB's announcement of the appointments can be viewed at:
