NEB needs more data to assess fracking in NWT and Nunavut
The National Energy Board (NEB) wants detailed information from energy companies in order to assess “the unique aspects” of future hydraulic fracturing activities in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut.
The Filing Requirements for Onshore Drilling Operations Involving Hydraulic Fracturing (NE23-175/2013E) sets out the information applicants must now submit with an application for an Operating Authorization (OA) issued under the Canada Oil and Gas Operations Act. In order to conduct its environmental assessment of proposals, the NEB requires information on project development, potential impacts to the environment, potential impacts from accidents and malfunctions, consultation with Aboriginal groups and the public, socio-economic impacts arising from environmental impacts and mitigation measures used to protect the environment. The Board can request any additional information it needs to assess an application, or may waive certain filing requirements if they are not relevant to the work applied for or activities. Additional data may also be required with each subsequent application for an approval, such as a Well Approval or Formation Flow Test Approval. The Filing Requirements, which took effect in September, are available online at www.neb-one.gc.ca/.
