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.
