CALGARY, Sept. 16, 2016 /CNW/ - The National Energy Board (NEB) has introduced a number of updates to its website www.neb-one.gc.ca to improve how it shares data and information with Canadians.
While many Canadians are aware of the NEB's role in reviewing new pipeline proposals, the NEB also plays a key role in regulating pipeline projects through the entire lifecycle – from design all the way to abandonment. But the NEB is about more than hearings, safety inspections, audits and enforcement. We are a fact-based source for Canadian energy information, including pricing, production, and consumption.
Based on feedback from stakeholders, the NEB has enhanced its website to make publicly available more of its market, safety and performance data, as well as information on lifecycle regulation, pipeline safety and industry performance.
The NEB's Resource Centre will make it easier for Canadians to find up–to-date market information, information on the NEB's roles and responsibilities, as well as current initiatives and activities. The Resource Centre has added a data hub, NEB snapshots, new videos and quick links to safety and performance data.
The Safety Performance Portal has been revamped and is now more interactive, and includes information regarding the cause of incidents.
The Emergency Management Program has been expanded to provide Canadians with more information about emergency management requirements for companies, how the NEB responds in an emergency, and NEB compliance and verification activities.
"These website improvements dramatically improve the way in which the NEB shares information with Canadians, and support our commitment to openness and transparency."
