The Proposed Project Amendment

Shell Canada Products Ltd. proposes to carry out physical activities related to the replacement of four existing berthing dolphins and the installation of a fifth berthing dolphin at the Shellburn facility 24 hours a day, five days a week for the construction period from January 2021 to June 2022. These works require an amendment to condition 23 of the approved Shellburn Berthing Dolphin Replacement project permit (PER No. 20-012). The rationale for the extended work hours request is to allow for safe, efficient and timely completion of Project activities that are tidally dependent.  

Project components associated with this request include formwork removal, fender panel installation, works to support installation of in-water piles such as splicing or welding pile sections together, and deck re-instatement activities. No pile driving activity (installation or removal) will be conducted outside of regular construction hours.
