NEB releases report on ‘whistleblower’ allegations against TransCanada

Canada’s National Energy Board has released its investigation into 16 allegations of regulatory noncompliance made through the NEB’s “whistleblower process” against TransCanada Pipelines Ltd.

The investigation regarding construction and maintenance practices concluded that six of the third-party allegations were “partially substantiated” and that TransCanada has “taken all appropriate and preventative actions.” Ten allegations could not be verified.

NEB said public safety and environmental protection were not at risk.

NEB received and responded to the 16 allegations in 2014 and early 2015. The agency sent a draft report to TransCanada on Sept. 18 and TransCanada submitted its response on Sept. 28.
