Enbridge has applied to the NEB for approval of its plan for abandonment funding purposes. The documents comprising Enbridge's application can be found at: Physical Plans for Abandonment and Preliminary Cost Estimates.
Enbridge's application includes excerpts from a Praxis Research study conducted for the Canadian Energy Pipeline Association (CEPA). The study consisted of a landowner survey, and Enbridge says that its abandonment plans took the results of the survey into consideration. However, more than 50% of respondents with Enbridge pipelines expressed concern about Enbridge pipelines being left in the ground. Read the study excerpt at: CEPA Landowner Survey.
