Montreal Pipe Line Limited Applies to Abandon Pipeline in place

Montreal Pipe Line Limited has applied to the National Energy Board to abandon in place a small length of oil line that has been deactivated for several years. At the following link you can read the NEB's initial response to the application, including a number of information requests, as well as the application itself:

One of the main concerns raised about the application is the risk of future contamination. MPL acknowledges in its application that the plan is to leave the pipe in the ground unprotected and the result will be the corrosion of the pipeline.
