TransCanada CEO: Saskatchewan spill will raise public skepticism to pipeline projects
TransCanada CEO Russ Girling is sure that after the Husky incident last week the industry will definitely face higher public skepticism to new pipeline project. The company is working on the Energy East project, which proposed a $15.7 billion pipeline that would move 1.1 million barrels of oil a day from Alberta and Saskatchewan through Quebec and into New Brunswick, the Calgary Herald reminds.

The public hearings on Energy East are set to begin on August 8 in Saint John. The project has already faced sizable opposition from environmentalists, including the Natural Resources Defence Council warning of the environmental threat posed by the probable increase in tanker traffic on the East Coast.

Girling mentioned that after the Saskatchewan pipeline leak TransCanada revised its pipeline safety policy.

“From all incidents, both ours and other incidents around our industry, we learn from them — certainly around moving water, that is one of our biggest risks,” said Girling.
