Primary Project Permits

Permits for natural gas pipelines (and related compressors, meter stations, etc.) or LNG Facilities are required before construction can start on a major project. Applications go through a thorough permitting process, described in our Permitting Process page. Approvals, issued under the Oil and Gas Activities Act (OGAA), contain specific conditions and requirements that the proponent must meet in order to be in compliance with the permit.
