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 up until June 30, 2023. This would require an extension to the approved project permit (PER 20-012), which has an expiry date of June 30, 2022.

In-water works have been planned to occur during least-risk windows for the protection of fish and fish habitat in 2020-2021 and 2021-2022. Based on the latest schedule, a third in-water construction season is needed to complete the project. There are no changes to construction activity or the scope of the work.
