Foreign Pipeline Intervenor Training

Watch this Space for Upcoming Training

 In January of last year, the foreign pipeline company, Enbridge, again announced that it is coordinating development activities for a new pipeline to run within one mile of DeKalb and within a few hundred feet of Belvidere. The announcement appeared in their January Investment Community Presentation and would parallel the existing tar sands pipeline running through Boone, DeKalb, LaSalle, and Livingston Counties, a pipeline with capacity approximately equal to the proposed Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines combined.  The new pipeline would potentially double that capacity, making Illinois the superhighway for transporting Canadian tar sands bitumen to the Gulf Coast for export.

In Illinois, the pipeline approval process in the past has primarily involved only parties with a direct financial interest in the project, from the pipeline company to landowners. We think the public should have a strong voice in the process.  In our training sessions, we will show you how to participate in the legal pipeline approval process.

If you oppose additional foreign tar sands export pipelines in Illinois, or if you think foreign companies should not be able to seize land rights, or if you are concerned about pipeline safety, join us in these exercises in democracy.
