Panel issues Mackenzie natural gas report

Panel issues Mackenzie natural gas report

A nearly decade-long quest to build a multibillion-dollar natural gas pipeline in Canada's north has cleared a major hurdle.
A government appointed panel examining the environmental and socio-economic effects of the Mackenzie Gas Project said Wednesday the 750-mile (1,200-kilometer) pipeline will "provide the foundation for a sustainable northern future" if the panel's 176 recommendations are adopted.
The Mackenzie Gas Project is a proposed pipeline through the Mackenzie Valley of Canada's Northwest Territories to connect a dozen potential northern onshore gas fields with North American markets.
Canada's National Energy Board will begin its own hearings in April, taking the Joint Review Panel's recommendations into consideration when it decides whether to let construction go ahead.
