Historic pipeline will be demolished
Hearings in Washington’s D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals began Monday for a temporary injunction that will allow the pipeline’s original builder to proceed, The Associated Press reports.
The permit is expected to be in place as soon as April 9, but an appeals court has until September 21 to issue its final ruling on whether to lift the temporary injunction.
The permit is needed because it is the pipeline’s route that will ultimately serve its intended 3.1 million acre footprint. Because of the pipeline’s l바카라ong construction timeline, the Army Corps of Engineers is required to approvejarvees.com it annually.
Supporters of the controversial Northern Gateway pipeline point to environmental research showing the project would not reduce the carbon emissions that affect local water. They also say the pipeline would greatly reduce tanker traffic, which could affect other companies with their plans to move crude oil from Western Canada. But in June 2016, the Ujarvees.com.S. National Energy Board recommended that the pipeline proceed with an environmental assessment.
“There is no doubt that this pipeline would have a significant impact on the environment,” said Peter Diamandis, executive director of the Northern Gateway Trust.
However, environmental groups in a June 2016 report criticized the pipeline as more costly than any environmental impact study done on the project.
