Opinions on energy development and transportation are constantly evolving, and with the recent approval of the Northern Gateway Pipeline and the ongoing application for the TransMountain Expansion project, British Columbians are more interested than ever before in ensuring pipelines are constructed and operated safely.

This luncheon will begin with a presentation by Chris Peter, P.Eng. who was a Registered Intervenor in the Northern Gateway Pipeline hearings. Following that presentation, attendees are encouraged to voice their opinion on Northern Gateway Pipeline during the discussion portion of the event.

Chris' presentation will include review of the following topics:
  • Life-cycle Costing - Application of the APEGBC Sustainability Guidelines to the Northern Gateway Pipeline
  • Cost benefit analysis submitted to the National Energy Board
  • Experience collaborating with other professional engineers during the National Energy Board hearings
  • Concerned Professional Engineers review of marine quantitative risk analysis submitted to National Energy Board.
  • Conclusion of the cost benefit analysis based on the above content.
