OEB Posts Summary of Consultation on Update to its Environmental Guidelines for Hydrocarbon Projects

In October 2022, Ontario Energy Board staff initiated a project to update the OEB’s Environmental Guidelines for the Location, Construction and Operation of Hydrocarbon Pipelines and Facilities in Ontario, 7th Edition 2016 (Environmental Guidelines). Click here to view the project launch letter.

The updates to the Environmental Guidelines were focused on a review of the process by which Ontario Pipeline Coordinating Committee (OPCC) members provide feedback on individual Hydrocarbon Projects, and the requirements individual OPCC members have with respect to various permits or approvals they issue that may be related to Hydrocarbon Project applications. Within this scope, and to ensure clarity and accuracy, the OEB sought input from the OPCC members, Conservation Ontario, and the natural gas utilities.
