Table of Contents Pipelines


A proposed road in a subdivision plan may cross a gas or oil pipeline.

The Oil and Gas Commission (OGC) has regulatory authority where proposed subdivisions cross a pipeline, pursuant to the Provincial Oil And Gas Activities Act and Regulations. This applies to all pipelines operated wholly within the Province of British Columbia.

Oil or natural gas pipelines that cross interprovincial or international boundaries are regulated by the National Energy Board pursuant to the Federal National Energy Board Act.
