In 2016, the NEB evaluated 14 full scale emergency response exercises

The National Energy Board(NEB) will take part in a full scale emergency response exercise at Kinder Morgan’s Burnaby Terminal, in Burnaby, British Columbia and at the Incident Command Post in Coquitlam, according to a press release.

The exercise is a requirement under a condition of the Trans Mountain Expansion Project approval and the National Energy Board Onshore Pipeline Regulations.

The NEB requires that companies maintain an emergency management program to effectively respond to an emergency that could adversely affect property, the environment, or the safety of workers or the public.

This exercise will include deployment of personnel with equipment to the exercise site, and test the company’s ability to respond to an emergency and work effectively with first responders.

NEB Inspection Officers will be on site at the Incident Command Post and at the Burnaby Terminal to observe, evaluate, and participate in the emergency response exercise.

As with all full scale emergency response exercises the NEB evaluates, the evaluation of the exercise will be posted on the NEB’s website within 90 days.

Assessment of the company’s capability to respond to an emergency, under realistic conditions, reflects one aspect of the NEB’s mandate to actively monitor compliance with regulatory requirements through the life of a project.
