The National Energy Board (NEB or Board) today announced its decision to hold a public oral hearing to consider an application from Trans Mountain Pipeline ULC (Trans Mountain) for approval of the toll methodology that would be implemented on the proposed Trans Mountain expanded system, if the system is eventually expanded.

Trans Mountain is not seeking Board approval on its proposed facilities expansion at this time and has not filed a facilities expansion application with the Board.

In assessing a toll methodology application, the Board considers whether the resulting tolls would be just and reasonable, and not unjustly discriminatory to any shippers.

The process inviting public comments on the draft List of Issues and the hearing process concluded on 10 September 2012. After reviewing all submissions, the Board decided to convene a public oral hearing, with the oral portion scheduled to begin on 13 February 2013 in the NEB’s Hearing Room, 2nd Floor, 444 Seventh Avenue SW, Calgary, Alberta.

The NEB has identified a number of issues for discussion during the hearing, including whether the proposed toll methodology is appropriate. The complete List of Issues that the Board will consider is listed in Appendix I of the Hearing Order [Filing A47743], available on the Board’s website at www.neb-one.gc.ca.
