We’re Building More than Pipelines

We’re building Canada, bringing


growth to the north
We’re building sustainable communities
through jobs and investment
We’re building opportunity for all Canadians.

The Northern Gateway is far more than a pipeline.


It’s about creating economic opportunities, jobs and
the promise of a brighter future. And we will build this

A World-Class Gateway
As the largest infrastructure project ever undertaken between the two
provinces, the Enbridge Northern Gateway Project will bring economic
opportunities to Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal groups across northern
British Columbia and Alberta. With an estimated capital cost of
$5.5 billion, Northern Gateway will create thousands of job opportunities
for regional residents throughout project construction and operations,
while providing approximately $36 million of property taxes annually.

Northern Gateway will be a model of world-class safety and

“Northern Gateway’s shipping routes can be safely navigated
by the largest ships proposed for the project. In fact, at
the narrowest points the Douglas and Principe Channels
have waterway-to-vessel width ratios three times wider than
Transport Canada’s minimum recommendation.”
Chris Anderson, Master Mariner, Principal, Portplan

Over the past 25 years, more than 1,500 ships have safely travelled
to Kitimat carrying petrochemical products, including methanol,
ammonia and condensate. For Northern Gateway, three tanker routes
are proposed, all of which are existing shipping routes. The routes
include the North route via Dixon Entrance and Browning Entrance,
the South route via Queen Charlotte Sound and Caamaño Sound
and the South route via Queen Charlotte Sound and Browning Entrance.

Protecting the Environment

A
t Northern Gateway, safeguarding the quality of life enjoyed
by communities along the project route is always front-of-
mind, and we understand that the best way to do this is to
protect the environment. As such, the long-term success of our
project depends on our ability to construct the project in an
environmentally responsible way.

As part of Northern Gateway’s planning, a team of over


200 environmental experts and scientists conducted a
comprehensive analysis along the project route in areas such
as marine biology, soil, vegetation, wildlife, water resources,
fish, human health, archaeology and others. The findings of this
analysis have been incorporated into our planning to ensure
that construction proceeds safely and responsibly and that
our environmental impact is minimized throughout the
operational life of the project.

communities, industry and the general

place for the lifetime of the project.
Nurturing Economic Growth
The construction and operation of Northern Gateway will deliver sustainable economic
and social benefits to local communities in Alberta and British Columbia.

Should the project receive regulatory approval, it will create a lasting legacy of local
investment, tax revenue and jobs for the North, over and above the tremendous benefits
created by access to new and growing markets for Canadian natural resources.

At a time when the economy in northern BC is changing, many communities are looking
for other sources of revenue and employment. Northern Gateway has the potential to
support economic growth in the region and contribute to an energy sector that has
generated $7.5 billion in net royalties to BC since 2003.

60 Years of Safety and Innovation
Enbridge’s success has been built on a 60-year history of safe, reliable and environmentally
responsible operations combined with a tradition of mutually beneficial relationships with our
stakeholders and the communities in which we operate.

From its inception in 1949, Enbridge has placed the highest priority on the safety and reliability
of its operations. Our goal is to prevent all spills and leaks from our energy transportation and
distribution systems. We invest heavily in pipeline integrity and maintenance encompassing all of
the tools, technologies and strategies needed to ensure our pipeline networks have the strength
and operating “fitness” to do their job safely and reliably.

For Enbridge – as well as the landowners and communities along the right-of-way – this focus on
pipeline integrity has enormous implications. It’s a major step towards ensuring safe, incident-free
operations on one of the longest and most sophisticated liquid hydrocarbon pipelines in the world
that transports more than 2 million barrels of liquid petroleum resources every day.

WE WILL GENERATE A KILOWATT
OF RENEWABLE ENERGY
FOR EVERY KILOWATT OF POWER
OUR OPERATIONS CONSUME.
At Enbridge, we’re big believers in balance. This is why we’re
generating a kilowatt of renewable energy for every kilowatt of
electricity we use to power our pipelines. That’s not only good
for the environment, it’s good for business.
Our growing interests in green energy – including wind, solar,
heat recovery and hybrid fuel cells – generate attractive
returns for investors. Currently our investments in renewable
and alternative power have the capacity to produce more than
560 megawatts of electricity, which is enough to meet the
energy needs of approximately 180,000 Canadian homes.
As one of the world’s 100 most sustainable companies – and
one of Canada’s Greenest Employers – we’re delivering far
more than energy. We’re delivering on our commitment to
achieve a neutral environmental footprint.
