The application is an important milestone in a multi-step regulatory process to receive the necessary approvals to build and operate the 4,600-kilometre pipeline that will transport approximately 1.1 million barrels of oil per day from Western Canada to the refineries and port terminals of Québec and New Brunswick.

It is also the result of more than 18 months of extensive environmental studies, engineering work and public consultation, making it one of the most comprehensive regulatory applications in the history of Canada’s energy transportation industry.

The detailed application, which contains more than 20,000 pages in 70 binders, contains specific information on the jobs and economic benefits, environmental planning measures, design and construction methods for safe operations, findings from an independent Environmental and Socio-Economic Assessment, and details on discussions with over 7,000 individuals, 5,500 landowners and 158 First Nation and Métis communities across six provinces.
