Transmountain Pipeline 65 Years and Onward: An Interview with CEO Ian Anderson

This week we interview Ian Anderson the President and CEO of Trans Mountain Corporation, the proponent of the hotly debated TMX pipeline expansion project.  Ian explains the history of the existing pipeline — which moves crude oil and refined products from Alberta to Canada’s West Coast — and the planned expansion project. The discussion covers a range of topics, including the Canadian government’s historical decision to buy the pipeline last year, indigenous consultation and the next steps in the lengthy process.  Ian helps clarify the facts on marine safety, explaining why the TMX has some of the most rigorous marine safety practices in the world.

As referenced in the podcast, here is a link to the National Energy Board’s February 2019 Reconsideration Report that is over 600 pages long and contains detailed information on the project.
