Northern Gateway

Enbridge hopes that increased safety procedures, including magnetic resonance imaging testing on pipelines, will be enough to convince locals to approve its Northern Gateway project.
Enbridge Inc.'s Northern Gateway project would deliver 525,000 barrels per day of diluted bitumen from the oil sands to export terminals in Kitimat, B.C., where it would be loaded onto supertankers for export to Asia-Pacific markets. The oil industry is desperate to access new markets for booming oil sands production, but the pipeline faces fierce opposition from environmental, aboriginal and political groups.
