Scope of the Applications

The Project proponents are submitting the following regulatory applications:

  • development plan applications for Niglintgak, Taglu and Parsons Lake to the National Energy Board (NEB)

  • an application for construction of the gathering pipelines and related facilities to the National Energy Board (NEB)

  • an application for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity for a Mackenzie Valley gas pipeline to the National Energy Board (NEB)


  • a suite of detailed applications for land use and for infrastructure development to northern regulatory boards, GNWT regulatory agencies and Federal regulatory boards
  • These applications are supported by the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), which has been filled with the Environmental Joint Review Panel . The EIS assesses the potential socio-economic and environmental impact of all components of the proposed development.

    A decision to construct the Project has not been made. The final decision to proceed with construction will depend on obtaining the necessary regulatory approvals and assessing any conditions attached to those approvals, as well as several other factors, such as natural gas markets, project costs and fiscal terms.

    The project would include:

  • developing the estimated 165 Gm3 (six trillion cubic feet) of natural gas resource in the three anchor fields, Niglintgak, Taglu and Parsons Lake in the Mackenzie Delta

  • constructing gathering pipelines and associated facilities

  • constructing a gas pipeline from Inuvik, along the Mackenzie Valley to northwestern Alberta

    The gathering system would collect natural gas and associated natural gas liquids (NGLs) from the three fields and transport them to a facility in the Inuvik area. The gathering system will include:

    • gathering pipelines, consisting of four sections, ranging in size from NPS 16 to NPS 30, totalling about 175 km of pipe

    • the Inuvik area facility, built to separate the gas and NGLs, and to compress, pump and cool the gas and NGLs. The facility will be located about 20 km east of Inuvik.

    • a buried, NPS 10 NGL pipeline, about 475 km long, built from the Inuvik area facility to Norman Wells. The NGL pipeline will be built in the same right-of-way as the Mackenzie Valley pipeline. At Norman Wells, it will connect to the existing Enbridge oil pipeline.

    The applications to the National Energy Board include:

    The project began to file additional applications in April 2005. These include applications for permits to develop the project's infrastructure, such as construction camps, access roads, pipeline rights-of-way, storage areas and granular quarries. The permit applications are being filed with the relevant territorial regulatory boards and will also be available for public review.

    The project permit applications include:
