The Federal government of Canada on Wednesday upheld the request of the company to Kinder Morgan energy regulator in the country on issuance of local permits for the project Trans Mountain on the background the beginning of public hearings.

As stated in the statement of the Minister of natural resources Canada Jim Carr, the authorities asked the national energosovet with a letter in which I support the request of the company on the settlement of potential disagreements on the project with the municipalities or provinces to avoid undue delay.

Previously, the company filed an appeal before receiving the building permit from the city of Burnaby. Kinder Morgan also asked me to allow her to build a pipeline to bypass the city.

The project Trans Mountain worth 7.4 billion canadian dollars involves increasing the capacity of Trans Mountain pipeline between Edmonton in Alberta and Burnaby, British Columbia, from 300 thousand to 890 thousand barrels per day. The beginning of works is planned for autumn 2017, with first delivery in December 2019.

The project is part of the indigenous tribes of Canada. The new democratic party in British Columbia and the green Party also stated that they intend to work together to combat the expansion of the pipeline.
