Georgia Strait pipeline gets approval


A CANADIAN environmental review panel is understood to have given its approval to the proposed Georgia Strait Crossing gas pipeline in British Columbia, operator BC Hydro said recently. The National Energy Board panel’s ruling will be submitted to federal Environment Minister David Anderson, and clears the way for the proposal to  build a pipeline from Sumas, Washington, to Vancouver Island to continue through the regulatory process. The 136-km pipeline is a joint proposal of BC Hydro, the provincially-owned electrical utility, and US company Williams Gas Pipelines.
